Is it Time to Accessorize your Data Center?

PTS Aurora Wireless Temperature Monitoring Strips
Fashionistas aren't the only ones who have need to accessorize; sometimes data center managers rely on certain accessories that are designed to smooth a data center's daily operations, help things run more efficiently, and even extend the lifespan of their assets. Alongside the main components of a data center, there are other factors that need to be addressed to keep things running, including uninterruptible power, efficient cooling systems, and fire protection, to name a few. Beyond these mission-critical systems, there exists a variety of add-on products that serve specific needs that may apply to your situation.

A few of PTS' recommended data center accessories are as follows:
Use of these accessories may save you time, may save you money, and may even change the way you run your data center's daily operations.  In any case, these, and other accessories, should be considered in all data centers.

Tintri: Smart Storage that Sees, Learns and Adapts


Our clients often come to realize that the performance demands of their virtualized databases, applications, and VDI are not being met by their current IT infrastructure technology. In our experience, we find the culprit to be the storage technology itself.


Tintri Smart StorageTintri is a near "zero" management NFS storage solution built specifically to manage virtual environments for servers, desktops, test development, and production workloads. This means no LUN's, volumes, or tiers to manage. Tintri's file system is built from the ground up, allowing you to solve a lot of the complexities and inefficiencies traditional storage brings to the table.

PTS has partnered with Tintri to make available a no cost nor obligation, proof-of-concept (POC) array to test for yourself. Please contact PTS today to see if you qualify: (201) 337-3833 or email us at: TintriPOC@PTSdcs.com

Issue of Comatose Servers & Findings in Uptime's Data Center Survey 2013 Report

In reading Uptime’s Data Center Survey 2013 report, the below stats from the report seem silly since there are simple inexpensive solutions to audit, identify and eliminate comatose servers.

 • 43% of respondents have no scheduled audit of their server environment
 • 33% of respondents report > 5% comatose servers
 • Decommissioning (1U) servers can result in a savings of $500 per year in energy costs, an additional $500 in operating system licenses and $1,500 in hardware maintenance costs.

In the Northeast, utilities such as ConEd, NYSERDA and PECO offer attractive incentives for eliminating comatose servers as well as virtualizing underutilized IT equipment so why are many still sitting on the sidelines in addressing this issue?
