  • Illustration of green deal best practices like renewable energy and recycling
    Organizations in Europe are currently facing the challenge of reducing energy consumption and improving sustainability in light of the European Green Deal. The EU Green Deal has been approved by the European Commission which focuses on decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by 55% compared to the 1990 levels by 2030. Europe is striving to be the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. In addition to the EU Green Deal, the Code of Conduct (CoC), the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), and the EN 50600 were also created. The CoC was generated by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) in 2008 to encourage data centers to adopt the best practices available to decrease energy consumpt...

  • AI chip
    AI is booming. The AI market is projected to grow 37.3% annually from 2023 to 2030. With so many organizations adopting or considering AI applications, data centers need to be ready to support the new demand. However, without the right tools and data, it is difficult to understand if your existing facilities have the capacity to support systems like the “gold standard for AI infrastructure,” the NVIDIA DGX H100. The key considerations for deploying the NVIDIA DGX H100 system include: Power. The DGX H100 system’s power usage is 10.2 kW maximum. It contains six power supplies with balanced distribution of the power load. The specification for each power supply is 3300 W at 200-240 V, 16A, a...

    Are data center managers reversing their cloud strategy? Cloud repatriation is the process of migrating applications, data, and workloads from a public cloud environment to on-premise infrastructure, and it’s becoming a popular data center trend. According to IDC, 70-80% of companies are repatriating at least some of their data each year. What is driving cloud repatriation? There are a variety of reasons why cloud repatriation may be an attractive option: Cost concerns. Many organizations initially moved to the cloud for its scalability and pay-as-you-go pricing model. Now, as demand increases, the rising cost to run certain workloads no longer justifies the use of cloud services. Cost...

  • Servers
    Data center consolidation involves reducing the number of servers, storage, network systems, racks, or entire data center sites to improve IT efficiency and create a more streamlined environment with lower space, power, and cooling requirements. As businesses migrate their workloads to the cloud or virtualize servers, the need for physical space decreases. This prompts companies to downsize their footprint, utilizing existing resources more and alleviating data center management challenges. Cost reduction is another driving force behind consolidation. By managing and maintaining a smaller set of data center resources, organizations can significantly reduce operational expenses. The increased...
