Welcome to MCPc, Inc.’s new Power Blog!
You are probably asking yourself, “Why blog about power?” The answer is actually an easy one. While there are many technical engineers in an organization’s Information Technology department, very few have a solid background in power management solutions. Most internal technical resources focus on networking, server solutions, unified communications, storage, converged infrastructure/virtualization, applications, or end user compute. Power Management from the desk top to the data center is a topic that is usually an afterthought. It is thought about after everything else has been addressed. Then, just before an order for the solution is placed, some asks, “What about power?” It is at this point that the power solution is retro-fitted to conform to the solution at hand as opposed to it being an integral part of the overall solution. This typically leads to under or over sizing of the UPSs, inefficient cooling, and ineffective cable management.
