Top KVM over IP Considerations

Digital KVM over IP products, or IP KVM switches, allow secure remote access and control of network devices including servers that eliminate distance limitations. These non-intrusive hardware-based solutions allow both in-band and out-of-band access to all servers connected to the KVM over IP switch. With advanced security across all operating systems, remote access via WAN/LAN

Server Room Monitoring – Not Just for the Big Boys

Even small server rooms can benefit from environmental monitoring devices.  Proper server room monitoring can provide warning of impending disaster that threatens availability and up-time.  Temperature sensors can alert IT professionals of over-heating situations, humidity sensors can alert to overly dry/moist conditions, fluid detection  sensors can alert to flooding conditions, and intrusion/security sensors can help

SynapSense Active Control Data Center Cooling Software

Data center monitoring is an integral part of managing any server room. Beyond monitoring though, efficient use of cooling resources is critical to reducing data center operating costs and effectively managing IT capacity changes.  To help data center professionals with this critical task, SynapSense has recently released a new software package which, when combined with

42U Webinar: Energy Efficiency Best Practices

Electricity expense has become an increasingly important factor of the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centers. Energy consumption of typical data centers can be substantially reduced through design of the physical infrastructure and IT architecture. Electrical power usage is not currently a typical design criterion for data centers. Historically, it has also been

42U Webinar: Energy Efficient Cooling Solutions for the Data Center

Accenture recently reported on an event hosted by Sun Microsystems assessing four energy-efficient modular, scalable server rack cooling systems for data centers. During this “Chill-Off”, the four solutions were evaluated under a range of conditions reflecting different inlet air temperatures and server loads, and for the appropriate systems, elevated chilled water temperatures. The rack density
