Optimize Data Center Power Usage with High Network Availability

Feb 07, 2017

Data centers employ a wide range of business models and vary greatly in size, scope, and implementation. For example, private data centers are often built by enterprises for their individual usage needs. On the other hand, colocation data centers can be much bigger than the average private facility and are designed for data center service providers to rent storage and computing capacity to midsize businesses migrating to the cloud. Whether they are comprised of traditional servers mounted on racks in a climate-controlled room in a brick-and-mortar building, or modular prefabricated building blocks designed for rapid deployment, all data centers require the same essential IT, power, cooling, fire protection and access control elements. As a result, any attempt to improve PUE must also address power management and environmental monitoring efficiency.

Moxa’s Solutions

To help data center IT and IA engineers optimize power usage effectiveness for their facilities, a wide selection of industrial-grade Ethernet solutions are available. Designed specifically for ensuring high network availability for power devices and environmental monitoring systems in the high noise conditions, these products feature rugged design that provides EMC resistance, wide-temperature operability, as well as millisecond-level network recovery. Tailored features, such as simple control logic or Ethernet cascading, may also provide more flexibility and scalability to meet the different demands of data centers are also contribute to efficient energy consumption. Last but not least, smart I/Os that support SNMP and Modbus TCP also simplify data acquisition for environmental monitoring to keep critical systems online.
