This report tackles the challenges, standards and best approaches to thermal efficiency in existing facilities largely due to them being more prevalent when compared to a new facility. You will be introduced to four best practices that are absolutely critical to achieving an optimal thermal environment. The report also explores the future of datacenter cooling and introduces emerging technologies.
For many enterprises, the data center powering their workflow is located someplace far removed from where the people using it are located. Typically the data center is either close to inexpensive power, or located in a facility that is off campus somewhere not necessarily convenient to those administering and using it. This brief explores remote power management as a way of ensuring that your data center works for you and not the other way around.

Capacity planning is one of the most difficult aspects of building a data center today, given the complexity and number of variables to consider.
This new White Paper, from leading solutions and innovation provider Panduit, brings fresh insight into the central issues facing data center planners both for initial “build” and for future growth, with valuable “real life” examples drawn from actual customer case studies.
Download now to understand how best to:
• Avoid capacity fragmentation: identify areas of “lost” or “stranded” capacity
• Establish “best fits” for capacity in your center
• Maintain equilibrium between the four critical elements of any effective data center management plan
• Implement proactive planning: speed decision-making and deployment
• Optimize existing resources
• Improve data center operations and efficiency
• Reduce OPEX
• Avoid unnecessary CAPEX by extending the life of your center.
In today’s complex and competitive business world, to be successful and survive, organizations need to be agile, flexible and fast to adapt to changes. Competition gets more aggressive and clients expect more every day, with the 24/7 nature of the global commercial world we live in and the vast availability of similar
solutions, organizations and options, how do you stay ahead?
The most important factors that determine the correct operation of modern automation, electronics, industrial computers and other devices are the correct power supply and the appropriate climatic conditions. These are necessary to ensure ongoing operation of priority infrastructure equipment – server room, data communication, power engineering.
Testing and troubleshooting are imperative for data center operators to provide a continuous access to data via network connections. This case study provides useful knowledge of some of the key test use cases for data center operators.

This eBook is designed to help forward-looking IT Managers envision a different way of working —where simplicity replaces complexity.
We’ll look at what makes managing today’s IT environments so challenging—increasing com- plexity, poor visibility and constraints on budgets and space.
Then we’ll help you visualize a new way of working that greatly simplifies the challenges of managing data, infrastructure and operations.
Imagine way of working in which you have the time to really help your company improve the way it does business, and save you money.
In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come
at a capex premium.
Earlier this year, Schneider Electric launched its preconfigured edge datacenter resources with its SmartBunker and SmartShelter products. In developing these products, Schneider closely examined the requirements for successful, secure, rapid edge deployments in support of the explosion of edge data. The result is a standardized solution that can be customized as required and deployed virtually anywhere.
This paper discusses making realistic improvements to power, cooling, racks, physical security, monitoring, and lighting. The focus of this paper is on small server rooms and branch offices with up to 10kW of IT load.
This white paper discusses the requirements of GDPR and how they can be addressed with integrated Citrix technologies for contextual access, network security, application security, data security, and analytics and insights.
