SPONSORED STORIES FROM THE INDUSTRY THE KNOWLEDGE COMPANY SHOWCASE NETWORK Rittal Exhibiting at DatacenterDynamics 2017 The global-leading DatacenterDynamics Converged Europe Conference Find out more and Expo, at London’s old Billingsgate, will bring together some of the about Rittal world’s keenest minds to share their expertise with an international DatacenterDynamics Converged Europe audience of senior ICT and datacentre professionals. Conference and Expo Rittal will be there to highlight solutions to diverse factors confronting companies who design, install and operate Data Centres, by providing efficient, flexible and scalable solutions that are prepared for the tasks of tomorrow. The team says it will be offering a myriad of solutions to visitors, providing advice and expertise about the design and effective operation of data centres of all sizes. Visitors can explore how to build-in energy efficiency, the value of modularity, and how to future-proof projects, whether this involves installing a few racks or several hundred servers. Clive Partridge from Rittal says, “Rittal – The System is a concept that offers customers a co-ordinated approach to supporting development projects. Starting with close inspection and analysis of a customer’s requirements – which may extend to planning the entire data centre – we can then offer solutions based on precise-fit, efficient, IT-infrastructure components. These range from robust racks for server and network technology, to efficient power supply and protection, and energy-saving, climate control units.” Rittal’s s enior team will also be speaking at this year’s conference, using real-life examples to explore how working at the edges of technology can be the catalyst for invention. Visitors will be shown how, for example, in one high-density computing project, Rittal’s engineers challenged theoretical design limits, physically stressed products to the limit, and ensured resilience and security was at the forefront of all the design decisions. While not everyone will use high-density computing, the lessons learned in developing such systems will benefit any data centre director/manager, helping to reduce operating costs without compromising per formance.
