Eco-mode: Benefits and Risks of Energy-saving Modes of UPS Operation


Many newer uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems have an energy-saving operating mode known as “eco-mode” or by some other descriptor. Nevertheless, surveys show that few data centers actually use this mode, because of the known or anticipated side effects. Unfortunately, the marketing materials for these operating modes do not adequately explain the cost/benefit tradeoffs. This paper shows that eco-mode provides a reduction of approximately 2% in data center energy consumption and explains the various limitations and concerns that arise from eco-mode use. Situations where these operating modes are recommended and contraindicated are also described.

Application Performance Starts with Database Performance Analysis


Application performance management (APM) tools have helped create a new corporate culture of continuous performance monitoring and improvement. But these tools generally tend to focus on application-level issues, while database and infrastructure-related issues go undetected.

This white paper examines the gap in the monitoring capabilities of traditional APM tools, which so often fail to identify the true root of problems, particularly as production performance issues often lie in the relational databases that run the majority of enterprise applications.

This paper also introduces a subcategory of APM solutions—application database performance management (ADPM) tools—that aims to give a unified perspective of a system’s overall performance. Read the report to discover the benefits of putting an ADPM tool in place and help you build a business case.
