About the talk:
IT power supplies are an integral component in the electrical power chain of any enterprise having even small compute spaces. These power supplies though critical are often taken for granted. However, they introduce a variety of issues that need to be addressed including power quality, reliability, efficiency, redundancy, heat dissipation, electrical conversion, and are now even an intricate component of IT “Software Defined Infrastructure”. Optimizing their use can be a key differentiator in a successful data center. Over the last few years they have become more efficient, reliable, very flexible in configuration and visible both to the power chain and IT infrastructure. Mr. Arduini will discuss advances in power supplies for state of the art compute and data centers.
