Do You Know The Health of Your Electrical Distribution System?

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jun 06, 2017
If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures. A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed to determine the current state and reliability of your electrical system. For more information on Power System Assessments, download our white paper, "Assessing the Health of a Facility's Electrical Power Distribution System".

Mitigating Risk Using Power Management System

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Mar 28, 2019
Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.

Partnering with Certainty Series: Customer Demands at the Edge - Fix My Problem Before it Starts!

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Jan 26, 2018
Part 2 in our Partnering with Certainty Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge." In our last webinar, we discussed how trends & technologies like IoT and its many applications have helped drive an Always On, Always Connected mentality that has completely evolved customer experience standards. These demands are driving a need for resiliency in local edge environments, meaning compute & storage capacity is now coming back on premise for many applications – especially in industries like Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education. In other words, this highly distributed access layer is now becoming a compute layer – one that is mission-critical to delivering a flawless (or at least acceptable) customer experience. These environments are often make-shift wiring closets (janitor’s closets, back rooms, etc.) with no dedicated IT staff per each location. More than ever before, Healthcare, Retail, Finance, and Education customers are turning to solution providers to be that “dedicated IT staff” to find and fix problems before they start, so that the customer (or patient, or student) experience they’re working to provide remains a good one.

Top 8 Considerations for Choosing the Right Rack Power Distribution Units to Fit Your Needs

Published By: Tripp Lite     Published Date: May 15, 2018
As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.

Top 12 Questions to Consider When Choosing UPS Systems for Network/Server Applications

Published By: Tripp Lite     Published Date: Jun 28, 2018
One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems. A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

Going Beyond Radio with Motorola Solutions

Published By: Motorola Solutions     Published Date: May 21, 2019
When it comes to worker safety, efficiency and production, nothing is faster than right now. Organizations across various energy segments — oil, gas, petrochemical, electric utilities, water utilities and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communications solution devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage, poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions. The power of now puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because when communication slows, operation slows. Citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, clean running water and lights that turn on when they flip the switch. Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for energy workers day-in and day-out. So workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are not wasted and efficient operations are maintained. So energy companies can continue to exceed expectations. Unified communicati

The Multi-tiered Hybrid Data Center

Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Mar 25, 2009
To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.

Digital Utilities Inspire and Shape a Digital World

Published By: SAP     Published Date: Mar 22, 2016
Experts say the demand for electricity, natural gas, and water will double or triple as billions of people join the digital economy, and the use of energy and water will grow while vehicles and mass transit go electric. One thing is clear – the digital economy needs clean, dependable, and affordable electricity. This should be a great outlook for power generators, distributors, and retailers, but decarbonization, deregulation, and decentralization are disrupting the century-old utilities hierarchy. A “Digital Energy Network” is emerging that reflects new structures of power generation, transmission, distribution, and retail. It will foster new business models and processes and transform work in a competitive and collaborative digital economy.

How to Lower Email Costs While Increasing Reliability

Published By: Concentric     Published Date: Mar 27, 2009
Email has become something of a critical utility, much like the electricity that powers our offices: it must be available 24 hours a day, it must provide reliable performance, and its cost must be reasonable. However, unlike electrical systems (at least from the user’s perspective), email systems require significant amounts of labor to manage well. Email systems must periodically be upgraded. New hardware must be introduced as organizations migrate to new systems. Security must be maintained and upgraded to protect the system from intrusions. Additional hardware must be deployed to protect against outages that could seriously harm user productivity. Plus, unexpected events, such as spam storms or natural disasters can drive up costs substantially in ways that were not anticipated.
