PTS Showcasing Its CloudCover Convergence Platform at NJTC Innovation Forecast 2/10/2015

NJTC Innovation Forecast 2015Tuesday, February 10, 2015 - NJTC Innovation Forecast 
PTS will be showcasing its CloudCover IT/Facility/Cabling convergence platform, with partner SimpliVity, a leader in hyper-converged IT deployment including compute, storage, WAN optimization, backup, replication, and deduplication. The Innovation Forecast will also feature a panel on how new ideas will be funded in 2015 and beyond. After the event, attendees will have an opportunity to take a tour of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, one of the leading technology laboratories in the country.

The event takes place on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, from 1:00 to 5:00PM (Plus Tour) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, 100 Stellarator Road, Princeton, NJ, 08543-0451

Aquatherm: High Performance, Long-Lasting, and Environmentally Friendly Pipes and Fittings

Ideally hydronic pipe should not be affected by the fluid it is carrying, and the fluid should not be affected by the pipe. Sadly, many HVAC system use a compromised material called carbon steel for hydronic piping. Water oxidizes steel, which causes pitting, scale build-up, and eventually leads to failure of the pipe. These effects are mitigated through the use of closed systems where possible, chemical treatment, PH-treatment, etc. Still, metal pipes produce rust which gums up valves, clogs strainers, and accumulates in low velocity areas. 
Wonder if you did not have to compromise? Wonder if an ideal piping material was available… an economically feasible material that required no maintenance? Wonder no longer. Consider Aquatherm.
  • Aquatherm PipingDoes not rust
  • Provides a lower installed cost compared to other welded or soldered system
  • Has the lowest friction loss of any pipe on the market
  • Does not require chemical treatment
  • Does not require an open flame, glues, or chemicals to fuse it together; It uses heat fusion to bond
  • Limit liability of theft on job sites (it has no scrap value, unlike copper which is often stolen from job sites)
  • Requires less external insulation (due to R-value~1)
  • Resist condensation if left exposed
  • Mitigates sound transmission and physical vibrations
  • Can be directly buried underground
  • Will not burst if water freezes within it (above –20F)
  • Forms a monolithic piping system when assembled (no gaskets, solder, weld slag, glue, etc.)
  • Approved for HVAC, domestic water, sprinkler systems, irrigation, chemical drains, and food grade applications
  • Available in pipe sizes ranging from 3/8” up to 24” diameter
  • Proven 40+ year track record of installation around the world

Is it Time to Move or Colocate your Data Center? PTS' Relocation Services Can Help

PTS data center relocationSo you've made the decision to relocate your data center operations to a new facility. Perhaps you are moving the operations to a data center colocation facility because it was going to be too expensive to upgrade your in-house data center facility, or perhaps your organization prefers an operational expense financial model over spending capital expenditures (cash) today. Or maybe your company is simply relocating its corporate headquarters, including the computer room.

Regardless, you will have a lot of work ahead of you, and PTS’ data center experts can help. PTS’ Relocation Services provide comprehensive site selection, planning, project management, and implementation services for clients in need of data center or computer room migration, whether due to business changes, growth, changes in IT needs or requirements, business relocation, or other strategic business reasons.
