Successful Power and Cooling Infrastructure for Today’s Data Center


Gone are the days when you could simply focus on hardware costs to drive down your data center's operating expenses. As utility rates continue to rise, floor space disappears and demands from business users grow, data centers are forced to identify the most efficient infrastructure solutions to meet four critical criteria:

  • Scalability – to allow increases in density as loads increase
  • Energy Efficiency – to reduce the cost of operations
  • Redundancy – to ensure system uptime
  • Modularity – to support the constant moves, adds, and changes (MAC)

42U along with Daniel Kennedy and Jim Whitmore from Rittal Corporation, discuss the growing demands on data centers and how Rimatrix5, a scalable, flexible data center solution, provides outstanding IT service and on-demand growth capability.
