Why Cloud Computing is Requiring us to Rethink Resiliency at the Edge: White Paper 265 from Schneider Electric provides a forward-thinking methodology to improve the reliability of digital IT and critical data centre services, on which business continuity is most dependent - Published January 2017.

Types of Prefabricated Modular Data Centers:  White Paper 165 proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a frame- work for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.

Trade Offs and Benefits of Direct versus Indirect Air Economization in Data Centres:  White Paper 215 from Schneider Electric discusses the difference between direct and indirect economizer modes and the optimum situations for each method.  

New White Paper Explains How Row-Based Cooling Works in Data Centres:  White Paper 208 from Schneider Electric, which explains that capture and removal of hot air, rather than the supply of cold air, is its essential purpose.

Schneider Electric Compares Carbon Footprint of Batteries vs. Flywheels in UPS Systems :  White Paper 209 from Schneider Electric explains how flywheel energy storage for static UPS systems is often thought to be a green technology, a lifecycle carbon footprint analysis shows that emissions for flywheel systems can be greater in the long run than for equivalent battery-based systems.

 

Benefits of Pre-Terminated Solutions:  Pre-terminated cabling systems have been around since the beginning of computing, well before the inception of Structured Cabling. Early IBM System 36 and 38 computers used to be connected to its peripherals by way of factory terminated twin-ax assemblies, very similar to the ones still used today for 40 & 100Gb connectivity within the Data Centre.

Sky has rolled out a new DCIM (Data Centre Infrastructure Management) solution across its UK data centre estate. 
The project was awarded to and led by leading data centre specialists Keysource, who were chosen in partnership 
with Schneider Electric. StruxureWare for Data Centers DCIM platform was chosen to deliver a range of operational, 
performance, cost and efficiency benefits across Sky’s business.

After hosting a round table event aimed at addressing some of the industry's key topics, Keysource has created white papers that look in depth at two of the operational challenges facing the industry. ‘The Use of Fresh Air in the Data Centre’ and ‘Raising Inlet Temperatures in Data Centres’ papers highlight the impact of these challenges and the potential solutions that were discussed to help facilities and data centre managers make informed decisions and effectively manage their businesses.  Joining Keysource at the event were: the Uptime Institute, Operational Intelligence, Fujitsu Colt, Vocalink, Norland Managed Services and The 451 Group.

White Paper regarding the environmental benefits of using Diesel Rotary UPS systems to support critical loads in the datacentre.  Using DRUPS systems in high efficiency mode, brings significant benefits at partial loads, typical to a datacenter environment, without a trade off in reliability.

How Green is Green

White Paper regarding the availability in datacenter UPS infrastructures compared.  Typical characteristics of a DRUPS system are advantageous for the reliability and availability. In itself a DRUPS system is a simple concept, using a few components.

Diesel Rotary UPS reliability and process availability

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems require an energy storage capability with sufficient capacity to bridge the time between the mains power failing and an emergency power source, such as diesel fuelled on-site generation, starting and taking over the load
