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.
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.
The IoT is more than just machines talking to each other. Consumers rely on it to make their lives more convenient. Industry leaders use the Internet of Things to sell products, automate workflows, and engage with consumers. As time goes on and the technology develops, you’ll see that the IoT is the reason for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)
In every industry, IT professionals are watching their roles and objectives evolve rapidly. The world is now digital and data is at the core of how enterprises, governments and individuals manage their core functions. The impact of data is being felt beyond the IT department; it is reverberating through every aspect of our lives.

The hyperconvergence story has many chapters. In this small
book, I discuss the trends that are leading modern IT to hyperconverged infrastructure. I also discuss both the technical
and business benefits that come from implementing a data
center based on hyperconverged infrastructure.
This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.
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.
Your business is ready for a new data center or an upgrade.
But is your data center ready for your business? It can be. You want to optimize your ability to adapt to changing IT needs quickly while meeting performance and efficiency requirements. All while either deferring CapEx or reducing OpEx.
A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining
on-premise, at the “Edge”.
This 12-page white paper describes what a data center reference design is, what it includes, and explains how the benefits listed above are achieved.
A data center reference design acts as a starting point offering a project team several valuable benefits including:
• Facilitating and simplifying the planning phase
• Reducing time to create buildable designs
• Reducing risk, offering predictable performance and improved reliability of the data center once operational
This paper explains how to specify the physical infrastructure for an IT pod and describes optimum configurations based on available power feeds, physical space, and targeted average rack power densities.
Companies are looking for solutions that mean less financial outlay for head-office whilst at the same time simplifying operations. Given these considerations, SD-WAN can be seen as an alternative that can be integrated within the entire WAN architecture.

There are no one-size-fits-all outsourcing solutions. IT organizations need granular customization and flexibility to architect systems that support their unique requirements. Download this report to find out more.
