Typical data centers draw more than twice as much power as IT loads require. The cost associated with this power consumption is considerable and often avoidable. Get tips on reducing electrical waste and learn about better ways to measure efficiency.
Today, IT resources can be provisioned quickly and cheaply—some would say too quickly and cheaply. But those IT resources rely on brick and mortar as well as megawatts, which are abstracted from the IT department. This Webcast will identify pitfalls data center teams should avoid.
Most modern UPS systems do not include the internal transformers that were present in earlier designs. This evolution has increased efficiency while decreasing the weight, size, and raw materials consumption of UPS systems.

This paper presents the fundamentals of power system grounding, definitions and requirements of the National Electrical Code with respect to grounding, the need for low voltage ground fault protection and how it is implemented.
Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is often proposed as a key decision making criterion when comparing data center infrastructure systems. This paper explains how MTBF can be effectively used as one of several factors for specification and selection of systems, by making the assumptions explicit.
