Power Supply, the Key of Green IDC
Meet 80 PLUS specification, Save a huge amount of electric bill for enterprise, Compuware provides customized services
As demands increase in Cloud application, the IDC systems such as servers, storage systems, network systems, their quantity increase in substantial. But the devices, starting from booting, in addition to system maintenance, or power failure, they would be used until the next generation of products appear. Because the IDC must work 24 hours a day, and its demands would continue increase. This situation will generate a new issue “energy conservation issues”. Therefore, the server, motherboard, and mechanical design industries would emphasize energy-saving design, which will keep the performance of protecting the earth under the system can operate in high-speed. But in the technology point, right now, we need a new thinking to create a new vision. Then what is the key to the next wave of products to promote green IDC? The answer is “power supply”.
Power supply enter into energy-saving is not a new topic, but it is an important part in green IDC. The general manager of Compuware, Bill Liang, who said, when server walked into energy-saving, its related components and system design would toward in green. And power supply would be the key, if you want to use all of the electricity and don’t waste any electricity. But this viewpoint is rarely paid attention to by industry until 80 PLUS power supply specifications had become the important indicator in Taiwan, global government and enterprises, when they want to purchase green IT products. But some buyers would misunderstand when they first contact with 80 PLUS, they would think 80 PLUS is a single application. In fact, 80 PLUS has six levels.
Compuware Titanium Power Supply is an excellent tool for cloud and energy-saving
The power supply, which can meet 80 PLUS, it can use all of electricity at a certain proportion of the load and doesn’t loss. The IDC, that has dozens or hundreds devices, if they adopt the system, which can meet 80 PLUS, it can save a huge amount of electrical cost for businesses. This shows, power supply plays an important role in energy-saving.
In recent years, it is affected by the cloud room walk into customization, system walk into uniqueness. Servers, storage systems and other equipments, nor go to certain specifications. The situation make power supply market appears a customization trend. But it is limited by the marketing mode, which meet the past standard volume shipments. It is not easy to find a energy-saving server, which can catch in the cloud data center trends. However, Compuware products can meet the trend and provides the energy-saving power supply for servers, storage systems, white brand or motherboard industry by using small-volume production of a wide range of different items shipping mode. In the recent two years, Compuware not only successfully into the worlds 500 largest green supercomputer system, but also become many global well-known server and motherboard companies’ partner.
Until now, Compuware was established for 10 years. To be a well-known energy-saving power supply manufacturers in the world is his only goal. And it is continue to progress in every year. In 2006, Compuware had produced a series of products, which can meet 80 PLUS specification, but 80 PLUS standard specification was released in 2007. Following-up, Compuware launched products, which can meet 80 PLUS gold & platinum level. Compuware has become one of the leaders in power supply industry. At present, Compuware launches Titanium level product, its efficiency will better than 96%. It will push up the cloud industry into a new generation of energy-saving.
Integrated backup battery and make power’s quality stability
In addition, in the recent years, Compuware leads to launch digital power supply, which adopt digital control and can judge energy-saving by using software. It is conducive to the management. And it is approved in global supercomputer market greatly. In the recent 10 years, Compuware not only focus on studying but also get many patents. At the same time, Compuware gets many unique thinking by using "a little amount diverse". Compuware owns hundreds kinds of products, which can satisfy partners’ mechanical design.
The general manager of Compuware, Bill Liang, who emphasized that the market will enter into customization significantly, since it is affected by the demands of large computing centers, cloud service providers and large manufacturers. Customization would help Compuware continue grow in the market. In order to make products can think outside the box, in the recent two years, Compuware launches data center engine room products, which can make power supplies integrate with backup battery. The project has got the patents of Taiwan, China, USA and Japan. It will provide better and more stable power quality than UPS. In this year, Compuware forecasts there are many indicators case will adopt the project. Under the changes of the market, Compuware has confidence that this years overall revenue will grow more 30% than last year.
