With every recession, companies make valiant attempts to reduce their spending. One of the first things to go is marketing. Then the C-Suite starts to look for other potential savings, including in the area of servers and data management. But the need to process and analyze data, access the internet, and other tasks doesn’t go away. To be competitive, data centers also need to cut costs, and find ways to do more with less.  Sometimes this involves moves and changes that, while they cost time and even money to implement in the short term, will result in later gains in the long term.

by Louis Chompff
1y ago
There are several aspects of optimizing data centers, from making the best use of space, time, power, and personnel. But there are some surprisingly simple solutions that are often overlooked with power cords, especially when it comes to rack optimization. Here are just a few of them. SVT vs. SJT Power Cords One of the first needs of a data center is power, and while there are debates about DC powering data centers, for the most part, AC power is the answer, and that means that a part of rack optimization includes the routing of power cords.  Related to that is the durability of these co ..read more

Hot and Cold Aisle Containment in Data Centers
AnD Cable Products | Cable Management Blog
by Louis Chompff
2y ago
Data centers are often made up of hot and cold aisles, and the design of the hot / cold aisle data center is far from new. However, the traditional setup causes warm air exhaust from one aisle to flow into the air intake of the next, meaning that the overall efficiency of the data center is impacted. And really, that’s what hot and cool aisle containment is all about. Balancing hot and cold aisles is more important than ever to running an efficient data center As rack density increases, especially in edge data centers and hyperscale data centers, the need for efficiency increases. This is ..read more
