The Truth and Consequences of Data Center Downtime
Even momentary downtime events can result not only in lost revenue in terms of operational time and out-of-pocket costs needed to repair damaged equipment, but also in reputational damage that may threaten existing and future business opportunities. In this webcast, Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute and Peter Panfil, Vice President and General Manager for the Liebert AC Power business of Emerson Network Power, review the findings of the Ponemon Institute report on the causes and costs of data center downtime, and share strategies for preventing downtime in business-critical data centers of any size.

Efficiency without Compromise: Optimizing Data Center Infrastructure to Reduce Cost and Deliver High Availability
Energy efficiency has emerged as a data center manager’s top concern, but true data center efficiency is not limited to lower energy consumption – it encompasses efficiency of all aspects of design, operation and management. Discover four areas of opportunity for cutting data center design and deployment time, reducing operating costs and enhancing management and planning success, all while maintaining—or improving—data center availability. Ron Bednar, Strategic Marketing Manager for the Liebert Products business of Emerson Network Power, will examine how organizations can capitalize on infrastructure management, eco availability, high density and flexible capacity strategies to balance uptime and efficiency.

Fortifying Network Closets to Improve Patient Care and Doctor Satisfaction
As hospitals and other healthcare facilities become more reliant on technology-based, point-of-care offerings, the IT infrastructure supporting those technologies are increasingly as critical as the care itself. While Electronic Medical Records (EMRs), Picture Archiving Communication Systems (PACS) and wireless networks place more information than ever at a clinician’s fingertips, they can also place unprecedented strain on the network closets and data centers supporting their deployment. Join Dan Draper, healthcare industry marketing manager for the Liebert Products and Services business of Emerson Network Power to discover proven best practices for power protection, precision cooling and monitoring and management in small data centers and network closets to keep healthcare IT networks running.

Critical Systems Monitoring: Innovative Strategies for Effective Infrastructure Management
Today’s data center supports more critical, interdependent devices and IT systems in higher density environments than ever before. This fact has increased the complexity of data center operations – and created the need for more sophisticated and automated approaches to IT infrastructure management. Gaining control of the infrastructure environment leads to an optimized data center that improves availability and energy efficiency, extends equipment life, proactively manages the inventory and capacity of the IT operation, increases the effectiveness of staff and decreases the consumption of resources.   Join us, to discover the latest infrastructure management strategies for improving IT infrastructure performance and uptime.

To 30kW and Beyond: High-Density Infrastructure Strategies that Improve Efficiencies and Cut Costs
Instead of building data centers out, like a city with a growing population supported by sprawling suburbs, data center designers and managers are increasingly finding that it is more efficient to build up and replace the sprawl with higher density racks. Today’s data centers capacities are skyrocketing as newer, denser servers are deployed, but in addition to capitalizing on faster, smarter and smaller computing technologies, organizations can also realize significant cost and space savings by deploying high-density power and cooling infrastructures to support these systems. Discover how high density cooling, aisle confirmation and power distribution architectures can help reduce facility space, energy costs and IT budgets.

Midsize Data Center Optimization: Achieving Maximum Availability and Flexibility While Decreasing Costs
In a time when IT needs are only outpaced by energy costs, small and midsize data center managers are constantly evaluating design strategies and new technologies for optimizing data center performance while also considering legacy systems and new equipment. Discover strategies for optimizing your small or midsized data center in today’s growing IT environment without increasing costs in this webcast from Emerson Network Power. Join Matt Kightlinger, director of solutions for Emerson Network Power’s Liebert business, to discover power, cooling and control solutions to help you achieve greater availability, efficiency and scalability in your data center or computer room.

Measuring Data Center Efficiency: Tools to Demonstrate the Benefits and ROI of Enhanced Energy Efficiency
This webcast will give you a simple tool to demonstrate the ROI and performance-enhancing potential of data center efficiency improvements. It will review a holistic, prioritized roadmap for reducing data center energy consumption, and then reveal a proxy metric that takes an important step toward a universally accepted measure for data center output – an “MPG” for data centers. Learn how IT and data center managers can use an efficiency metric to improve and benchmark data center energy efficiency in a holistic way, pinpointing energy saving strategies with the most impact and potentially increasing data center efficiency by 3.6 times.

Strategies for Finding and Unlocking Hidden Power Capacity in your Data Center Infrastructure
Sizing data center power systems can feel like buying shoes for a fast-growing teenager. Fortunately, data center power systems are proving to be surprisingly adaptable. This webcast will help you determine how much “flex” exists within your data center power infrastructure and show you how to assess and unlock the hidden capacity in your power systems. Whether you’re evaluating your current facility’s ability to can carry you into the future, or planning a new facility, this session will give you new insight into sizing - and growing - power capacity.

Virtual Data Center Tour: Inside Emerson’s State-of-the-Art Data Center
Be the first to see inside Emerson’s brand new 35,000-square-foot, energy optimized data center. Learn the latest strategies for creating an energy-efficient, highly available and concurrently maintainable physical infrastructure containing industry-leading features. The data center contains an AC power infrastructure offering three layers of redundancy; high-density precision cooling systems capable of cooling capacities upwards of 300 W per square foot; infrastructure management and monitoring technologies that enable remote management of the entire facility; and energy-saving features predicted to provide an energy savings of 30 percent compared to a traditional data center.

Maximizing IT Performance and Efficiency with High-Density Cooling
Rack densities of more than 20 kW have gone from prediction to a reality at the same time energy costs are taking a bite out of IT budgets. Energy-efficient, high-density cooling can deliver more computing performance with reduced energy use. Simplify your IT environment, achieve greater power efficiency and reclaim more capacity and space – in critical spaces of all sizes.

Integrating Optimized Economizers in Your Data Center Design to Leverage the Advantages of “Free Cooling”
Integrating economizers into data center cooling architectures can be an effective approach to improving efficiency. However, designs need to consider humidity, contamination, system reliability, and controls to ensure that data center availability is not compromised. This webcast presentation will provide an understanding of the costs, benefits and best practices associated with implementing air-side and water-side economizers in specific climates. In addition, project examples will be provided that illustrate best practices in integrating economizer systems into data center precision cooling designs.
