A More Sustainable Approach to Enterprise Data Storage: Reducing Power Consumption with InfiniBox®

Published By: Infinidat EMEA     Published Date: May 14, 2019
Data continues to grow at an astounding pace? As a result, data center space is becoming more scarce, as more arrays are acquired to store all of this data. Along with this data taking up space, it is also utilizing a great deal of power and cooling. In fact, the average data center in the U.S. uses approximately 34,000 kW of electricity each year, costing $180,000 in annual energy costs. As Infinidat set out to revolutionize the storage industry, one of our goals was to help consumers of storage build a more sustainable infrastructure that would be not only better for the environment, but also help them to save money as well. All of our patents come together to form InfiniBox, a storage solution that does just this.

The Engineers’ Guide to Smart Sensors

Published By: Panasonic     Published Date: Oct 01, 2019
For manufacturers, the transition to Industry 4.0 has meant the accumulation of data, massive data. Indeed, the accumulation, distribution and evaluation of data are driving virtually every decision on the manufacturing plant floor and supply chains shaping those decisions. Given the striking fact that ninety percent of the data in the world has been created over the last two years, it isn’t surprising that more than 60 percent of large companies report having a Chief Data Officer. But what has opened the floodgates to this deluge of information in manufacturing? Ordinary sensors have been transformed into smart sensors with the advent of IoT technologies and are being deployed by manufacturers along every step of the supply chain. Sensors are now detecting everything from when a piece of equipment will need maintenance to controlling energy costs inside factories.

How Technology Helps Cities Become Sustainable and Inclusive

Published By: Amazon Web Services APAC     Published Date: Sep 19, 2019
This paper examines how cities are using cloud technology to address public challenges, using the framework of the global coalition, Smart Cities Council. This framework promotes three core values for smart cities: livability, providing clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion; workability, providing an enabling infrastructure (energy, transportation, internet connectivity) and high-quality jobs; and sustainability, doing so at no cost to future generations, as the Council puts it. This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.

Investing in Peak Performance

Published By: Shell U.K. Limited     Published Date: Jul 18, 2019
The way we produce and consume energy globally is changing. Over the next decade, the energy mix will undergo a significant shift at both a supranational and domestic level as we work towards a cleaner future. By 2030, the offshore wind power market is expected to be worth £30 billion per year. Fast forward to 2050 and the industry is projected to contribute to at least a third of the total global electricity supply. While this is great news for power generation companies, recent research has showed that the costs associated with maintaining wind farms will double between 2015 and 2020. To secure its place in the future energy mix, protecting a wind turbines value and output through effective maintenance will prove critical to achieving a competitive edge. There are steps that can be taken now, to reduce maintenance costs today and keep them lower in the future. Shell Omala S5 Wind 320 – advanced synthetic wind turbine gear oil that can help to ensure your wind turbines work harde

Primary Flash Market Evolving to Next-Generation Architectures

Published By: Pure Storage     Published Date: Oct 09, 2018
As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.

On the road to Smart Machines… How OEMs can improve the energy efficiency of machines

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: May 04, 2018
While many OEMs are aware of new technologies to make machines more energy-efficient, they are reluctant to make changes due to the perception that it will make their machines more expensive to sell. The constraints of cost reduction, usage of resources and energy reduction are becoming key drivers in the industry as consumers require manufacturers to be more “green”. This paper demonstrates how incorporating sustainable design can add value to their machines and differentiate OEMs from the competition.

The IoT Imperative for Energy and Natural Resource Companies

Published By: SAP     Published Date: Nov 22, 2017
Many energy and natural resource (ENR) companies still rely on static, error prone data sources. Using static data in assumptions that are made on actual production costs, operating capacity, and yields is no longer sufficient to compete successfully in today’s market, a situation made more problematic given that the ENR industry faces reduced market prices for products, increased costs for operations and an onslaught of new competitors.

Energy Resilience: Building The Business Case

Published By: Centrica Business Solutions     Published Date: Aug 14, 2018
The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.
