Power and Cooling Capacity Management for Data Centers

High-density IT equipment stresses the power density capability of modern data centers. Installation and unmanaged proliferation of this equipment can lead to unexpected problems with power and cooling infrastructure. Find out how to measure and predict power and cooling capacity and the rack enclosure level, to ensure predictable performance and prevent problems such as overheating, overloads, and loss of redundancy.

10 Questions to Ask About Human Capital Management in the Cloud

It can seem quite challenging to move an entire aspect of your organization’s infrastructure to the cloud, but as software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions become more and more common across the business world, this is a reality that many companies are having to face in order to reap the benefits of switching to the cloud.

There are many things to consider when deciding to move your HR and payroll functions to the cloud, and this easy-to-follow guide will help you prepare for the move. Learn 10 questions to ask about human capital management in the cloud, covering important factors such as data control, integration, costs, security, support, scalability, and more. Knowing what questions to ask a cloud provider about the level and type of service they have to offer will ensure that you get everything you need to know to make an informed decision that you can be confident about.

SaaS solutions provide a number of benefits for HR, such as cost savings and an end to worries about infrastructure maintenance or server capacity and processing power. But deciding on the right cloud solution for your HR needs can sometimes become a more time-consuming and confusing process than the actual solution implementation! This white paper provides several important questions that HR professionals can ask when researching potential cloud providers, in order to find the best-fit cloud solution for their organization’s HR needs, and start gaining the benefits from a switch to SaaS sooner.  Read More

Containerized Power and Cooling Modules for Data Centers

Standardized, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules are at least 60% faster to deploy, and provide a first cost savings of 13% or more compared with traditional data center power and cooling infrastructure. Facility modules, also referred to in the data center industry as containerized power and cooling plants, allow data center designers to shift their thinking from a customized “construction” mentality to a standardized “site integration” mentality. This white paper compares the cost of both scenarios, presents the advantages and disadvantages of each, and identifies which environments can best leverage the facility module approach.  Read More
