Quick guide to power distribution

Power distribution is facilitated through different pieces of equipment that take the power conditioned by your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and send it to your IT equipment. Power distribution units like rack PDUs can manage and even control energy consumption in smaller environments as well as large data center applications. Distributing power efficiently results in reduced operating costs and increased reliability. This guide should help you get familiar with power distribution, gain interesting insights and learn key considerations for future IT investments.

Disaster preparedness and avoidance handbook

Today’s information-driven organizations depend on the 24/7 availability of their IT infrastructures. Not only are downtime costs enormous, but data integrity is threatened by an ever-growing array of hazards, including power outages, natural disasters, equipment failure, and user error. Additionally, as data centers become more software-defined, they are increasingly vulnerable to software problems and cybersecurity-related catastrophes.

While virtualization of the data center has proven to be revolutionary for IT professionals—providing increased reliability, flexibility, and control, among other benefits—in order to fully realize these advantages, DR processes must also be optimized. This can create some unique challenges as IT professionals must focus their virtualization disaster recovery strategy around backing up and recovering virtual machines (VMs) as opposed to physical servers.
