With data growth creating a tsunami of bits and bytes, the evolving Data Center universe will not be slowing down any time soon. The demands of this evolution may be driving you to a new build, or perhaps strengthening an existing location. In either scenario, the many moving pieces of managing a Data Center project can quickly become overwhelming. Data Center project management experts discuss everything from cost estimates to vendor selection to meeting deadlines, and more.
We will discuss options for building out your critical infrastructure to support the rising need of increased capacities in Healthcare facilities. This will include Power and Cooling solutions for those building Coronavirus testing areas and operational improvements for insights into the status of critical facilities.
As the world adjusts to the demands of a “New Normal”, those building and operating Critical Infrastructure are not immune to the required changes – and gaps in visibility caused by these changes. But even before the Coronavirus, monitoring the powering and cooling of a facility had evolved past ‘a Tech hoofing to check-out an alarm’.
In this episode, Robert Leake is joined by DVL's John Yacina (Power Systems Sales Manager). Powering Enterprise-grade Data Centers provide the foundation that your Operations are built upon and poses questions from security to sustainability to those Teams. You want reliable power supporting your critical loads, and in this podcast we’ll provide a better understanding to achieve that goal through Data Center Tier Structures and how they apply to you, and more.
Potential stresses to your cooling systems are discussed. Improperly conditioned facilities can result in a myriad of problems from IT hardware malfunctions to loss of employee productivity. Properly maintaining this infrastructure ensures operation at the highest possible reliability level. Robert Leake is joined by DVL's Sanja Motz (Vice President of Service Operations) , Michael Hagan (Director of Thermal Services), and Matthew Hudspeth (Thermal Operations Lead Technician).
Battery Technologies continue to adapt to the world’s demand for more power. In Critical Facilities, these adaptations have been met with a mix of speculation and resistance. The Myths created from these perspectives are significantly limiting opportunities to recognize numerous benefits. In this episode of the DVL Power Hour, we address the real pros and cons of battery technologies. Host Robert Leake is joined by Sean Delaney from DVL's Philadelphia office.

If you’re designing a data center, this means you’re going to have more than your fair share of variables and challenges to juggle. For starters, an increasing need to accommodate Artificial Intelligence (and other High Performance Compute applications) while also meeting efficiency goals, as well as a host of new challenges that come from construction advancing into urban spaces. No one understands these challenges more than a professional who designs data centers every day. Join us, as...
Today, data center operators are preparing for heat densities that demand 20x the capacity of what they were just a few years ago. With this type of massive increase becoming the norm, you’d be remiss if you didn’t question what technology will effectively and efficiently cool your critical operations in the near future.In this DVL Power Hour webinar, we’ll be joined by Dr. Richard Bonner of Accelsius, as he helps us explore the world of thermal cooling. Bonner has a PhD in Chemical Engineeri...
As digital demands continue to rise, so does the growth of data centers worldwide. With new construction, expansion of facilities, and companies and applications migrating to the cloud, the need for more data center space has never been greater. But, as anyone familiar with logistics and facilities knows, before you can even pick up a shovel, there’s a mountain of legal paperwork to overcome. In this webinar, Jeffrey A. Moerdler, of the Mintz Law Firm in New York City, will join us to discuss...
Ensuring your data center operates without any issues takes a team of vastly experienced leaders who know to prioritize efficiency and safety.
