Overview

Title: Top key factors for selecting the Rack PDU that’s right for you

Duration: 45 minutes

Available on demand. Click here

Summary

The Intelligent Rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit) is an essential building block for resilient, agile and energy efficient Data Centers. The processing power and Ethernet connectivity provide exciting new opportunities to improve operational efficiency, safety and total cost.

Rack PDUs come in a variety of types, but to match your requirements to the right PDU you should consider: do you need single or three-phase power? How many sockets and what type of sockets do you need? How important are scalability and real-time transparency into your power utilization?

During this webinar, we will discuss features you need to consider in order to choose the perfect PDU for your site.

The Edge Data Center

Overview

Title: The Edge Data Center

Duration: 45 minutes

Available on demand. Click here

Summary

With the emergence of trends such as Big Data, IoT, and the wider hybrid computing environment, we are seeing a three-tier data center architecture developing. This network includes large, cloud-focused data centers and regional facilities, as well as localized, or edge data centers. The historic idea of server rooms and wiring closets being different from data centers is disappearing. Businesses operating in a hybrid environment are beginning to realize that it is the smaller localized data centers that define availability, and not the big centralized data centers.

During this webinar, we will discuss the challenges and trends of edge data centers and analyze them.

Innovation and best practices in Data Center Thermal Management solutions

Overview

Title: Innovation and best practices in Data Center Thermal Management solutions

 

Duration: 45 minutes

Available on demand. Click here

Summary

The spiraling costs of data center energy make it necessary to re-examine traditional design rules and to develop new best practices.  ASHRAE’s new guidelines have moved the air supply temperatures to servers to 24-27 degrees Celsius. The industry has taken the opportunity and re-designed the chilled water supplies to 20-26 degrees Celsius and now to 20-32 degrees Celsius. The move to higher water temperatures has not only saved a lot of energy operational costs but has opened the opportunity for considerable savings from FreeCooling, even in hot climates such as Israel.

During this webinar, we will demonstrate how we can reach efficiency and PUE levels in Israel that are better than northern European data centers build only 3-5 years ago. We will analyze and demonstrate the efficiency and PUE that can be attained with free cooling in cities such as Tel Aviv, Beer Sheva and Jerusalem.
