Attention to the details of their clients’ needs has elevated South Coast Controls (SCC) to the elite among control panel engineering corporations. For 30 years, this family company has manufactured and delivered expertly designed systems that meet the needs of its clients who consistently return with new projects.
The companies partner to launch the Lefdal Mine Datacenter, revolutionizing the data storage and colocation industry.
Norway’s Lefdal Mine Datacenter (LMD), which opened in May 2017, represents a revolution in data storage and colocation. The LMD, a collaboration between Rittal, IBM and the government of Norway, is a game-changer in data storage. It represents the most cost-effective, secure, flexible, and green datacenter in Europe.
Of all the concerns for an edge data center, cooling capacity consistently rates as a primary focus. A checklist of requirements includes:
Edge Computing Defined
Edge computing houses data processing capability at or near the “edge” of a network. Usually, servers are contained in a micro data center, with as few as one or two enclosures. Data which is mission-critical, such as a system fail, is captured and available in real-time on site. Edge computing is valuable in capturing bandwidth intensive and latency sensitive data for analysis, lowering operating costs and improving energy efficiency. Lower priority data can be sent to the cloud or to a remote data center.
Edge computing has risen to the forefront of information management in a very short time. Edge computing houses data processing capability at or near the “edge” of a network. The efficiency of this data management is well-documented. It is difficult to argue that accessing real time data for analysis is superior to later data retrieval. Latency of mission critical data is virtually eliminated. The decreased use of bandwidth and the elimination of data bottleneck to the main data center or cloud enhances productivity and cost savings.
Rittal Corporation and IBM have formed a global alliance, grown from a successful cooperative effort launched in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) in 2015. Rittal’s expertise in IT infrastructure coupled with IBM’s resiliency services in planning, constructing, operating and servicing data centers forms the basis for construction of data center projects.
5 accessories to enhance TS 8 enclosure functionality
With 12 million units sold around the globe, the TS 8 modular enclosure is established as the worldwide-standard. As businesses grow and enclosure needs evolve, many customers are turning to a variety of accessories to scale their solutions.
These five accessories for lighting, power distribution, viewing and operating, climate control, and assembly
Heat exchangers provide highly efficient cooling for electrical components. As energy costs increase, they are getting more consideration by system designers. Before making a design decision between air-to-air and air-to-water heat exchangers it is important to weigh installation considerations and use-cases. Here, we have provided an overview of each technology to help you determine which can best impact your equipment and your bottom line.
Last year, Rittal TS Enclosures and LCP high density cooling products were selected as the infrastructure solution for a single event - the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military, sponsored this first ever Cyber Grand Challenge (CGC).
