How Monitoring Systems Reduce Human Error in Distributed Server Rooms and Remove Wiring Closets

Surprise incidences of downtime in server rooms and remote wiring closets lead to sleepless nights for many IT managers. Most can recount horror stories about how bad luck, human error, or just simple incompetence brought their server rooms down.

This paper analyzes several of these incidents and makes recommendations for how a basic monitoring system can help reduce the occurrence of these unanticipated events.

Quantitative Analysis of a Prefabricated vs. Traditional Data Center

Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

Data Center 2025: Exploring the Possibilities

An industry-wide initiative, spearheaded by Emerson Network Power, to create a vision—or multiple visions—of the future of the data center. As part of Data Center 2025, Emerson has conducted interviews with key industry influencers, solicited feedback from the industry at the Data Center 2025 online portal, and conducted an online survey that generated more than 800 responses.

Cooling Strategies for IT Wiring Closets and Small Rooms

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets.

This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.

Avoidable Mistakes that Compromise Cooling Performance in Data Centers and Network Rooms

Avoidable mistakes that are routinely made when installing cooling systems and racks in data centers or network rooms compromise availability and increase costs. These unintentional flaws create hot-spots, decrease fault tolerance, decrease efficiency, and reduce cooling capacity. Although facilities operators are often held accountable for cooling problems, many problems are actually caused by improper deployment of IT equipment outside of their control.

This paper examines these typical mistakes, explains their principles, quantifies their impacts, and describes simple remedies.

Output short-circuit current bearable by the UPS

According to the standards, an “overcurrent” is a current which exceeds its rated value. Overcurrents can arise in different modalities, depending on whether they are the result of an overload or a shortcircuit.

While the former is a normal situation for an electrical circuit, the latter occurs after a negligible impedance fault between two points of the circuit where there is a voltage in ordinary operating conditions.

The aims of this white paper are to clarify the concept of prospective short circuit current bearable by the UPS, to explain the role of fuses and to indicate the requirements of the international standard IEC 62040-1.
