Preparing to move into a colocation can be a daunting and complicated process. There are many decisions that impact the cost to build, operate, and scale the data center remotely. In the past, IT departments would provide an estimate for the equipment and power needs required for their own systems. Some of these estimates [...]

Case Study: Scalable Infrastructure for High-Density Data Center

2020-06-16T04:33:04-08:00 May 16, 2020|Containment, Design & Installation, Low Voltage Structured Cabling, Racks & Hardware|

Objective The customer, a cloud company, is looking to build out the infrastructure in its colocation data center in Santa Clara, California. Needing nearly half a megawatt of power, this technology company required the installation of new equipment, maximizing the use of materials already available, and a plan for equipment to be purchased later. The [...]

Add Security with Cabinet Locks

2017-07-20T09:50:31-08:00 July 20, 2017|Racks & Hardware|

Acting as the last line of defense, the lock and key can prevent unauthorized access within a data center cabinet. But did you know that most manufacturers ship their data center cabinets with the same lock and key? If you need additional security (and peace of mind) for your equipment, changing the lock core or [...]

Is White The Way To Go?

2017-02-16T11:00:14-08:00 February 16, 2017|Racks & Hardware|

In our most recent data center build out project, we helped design, procure, and install white data center racks. There has been lots of speculation over the last several years whether white is the new black for data center cabinets. Some manufacturers have suggested that white cabinets can save up to 30% in lighting costs. This [...]

Are Your Racks and Equipment Properly Grounded and Bonded?

2017-03-29T15:37:44-08:00 December 21, 2016|Design & Installation, Racks & Hardware|

Grounding and bonding provide a pathway that allows fault current and transient voltages to return to their source. Technically, grounding and bonding mean different things. Grounding is a process meant to protect people against a possible fault in the electrical system. Bonding electrically ties all specified metallic elements together to minimize the differences in voltage. [...]

Challenges In High Density Rack Deployments

2017-01-11T12:20:00-08:00 June 14, 2016|Power Strips, Racks & Hardware|

Rack densities continue to increase as customers look to optimize data center utilization and reduce costs. If you can go from 4 x 5 Kw racks to 1 x 17 Kw rack, why not? The savings in real estate and infrastructure (racks, rack power strips, connectivity) are significant. Back of the envelope calculation gave me [...]
