Avoidable Mistakes that Compromise Cooling Performance in Data Centers and Network Rooms

Avoidable mistakes made when installing cooling systems and racks in data centers or network rooms compromise availability and increase costs. These flaws create hot spots, decrease efficiency, and reduce cooling capacity. Although facilities operators are often held accountable for cooling problems, many problems are caused by improper deployment of IT equipment. Learn more about these mistakes and about simple remedies.

VoIP Introduction

VoIP uses internet protocol data packets to transfer voice, fax, and other data over the shared network, rather than the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN), which is based on copper wires carrying analog voice data over the dedicated circuits. VoIP, in contrast to PSTN, uses what is called packet-switched telephony, whereby the voice information travels to its destination in individual network packets across the Internet that are assembled and then converted to voice. Learn the basics of VoIP by reading this white paper, which includes explanations of coding and protocol for VoIP, and a look at quality and myths about VoIP.

BYOD Without Tears: The Impact and Challenge for Network Engineers

Bring your own device (BYOD) is as much a sign of cultural change as it is an indicator of prevailing technology trends. But network performance and security concerns can arise when employees want to use their personal devices at work. This white paper looks at the challenges of integrating BYOD with corporate networks in a way that BYOD does not compromise connectivity or performance for established wired and wireless users.

Strategies for Deploying Blade Servers in Existing Data Centers

Blade servers have a major advantage over traditional ones—improving processing ability while using less power per server. But, with their smaller footprint, blades can be much more densely packed, resulting in racks that use up to 20 times the electrical power and generate up to 20 times the heat. This can stress power and cooling system capability. Learn how to create a power and cooling strategy with these guidelines.

Humidification Strategies for Data Centers and Network Rooms

In some circumstances, the air surrounding IT equipment can be harmful to internal electronic components and lead to failure and downtime. Reliance on precision cooling solutions to maintain the proper humidity level in a computer room or data center doesn’t always assure proper humidity levels at the IT equipment air intake. Learn more about humidity, its effects, and its management in computer rooms and data centers.

The Advantages of Row- and Rack-oriented Cooling Architectures for Data Centers

The traditional room-oriented approach to data center cooling has limitations in next-generation data centers. Next-generation data centers must adapt to changing requirements, support high and variable power density, and reduce power consumption and other operating costs. Find out how row- and rack-oriented cooling architectures reduce total cost of ownership (TCO), and address the needs of next-generations data centers.
