Virtualization, cloud computing, big data, and converged infrastructures are rapidly transforming corporate IT. Unfortunately though, the data centers many businesses rely on lack the power and cooling capacity to handle those technologies. Worse yet, the packaged rack-based power and cooling modular solutions that some vendors claim increase the efficiency and power density of those data centers are both costly and inflexible.

Utilizing best-of-breed power and cooling systems that maximize capacity and minimize waste without locking companies into a limited set of deployment options and vendors is a far more effective approach. This white paper explains why many data centers are ill-equipped to support today’s most important new technologies; discusses why packaged power and cooling solutions can be a flawed way to upgrade existing facilities; and describes the core components of a data center upgrade strategy capable of enhancing efficiency and power density more completely and cost-effectively.
