Data center managers from Box, Nu Skin Enterprises, and VMware will weigh in on designing power chains to support higher-density loads in the "High Power Can Bring High Rewards" panel, scheduled at 2 pm in Hall 2.
Best practices and considerations for deploying high power in data centers will be explored in this customer panel session, moderated by Jawahar Swaminathan, Director of Energy Management Solutions at Raritan. Racks filled with 1U 'pizza box' servers, multiple blade server chassis, and network storage devices are driving higher demands for power. Panelists will share how they have addressed cabinet loads upwards of 14kVA and more. Whether renovating a current data center or building a new one, how you bring power to your racks will impact future capacity and growth.
