  • NOx Control for high-ash coal-fired plant
    NOx Control for high-ash coal-fired plant Maggie Wiatros- Motyka Recorded: Feb 21 2018 41 mins
    Many countries have strict emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and so NOx control systems are widely used on coal-fired power plants. India has recently introduced NOx emission limits so pollution control technologies will need to be installed. This webinar will review available NOx controls for coal-fired units in general. With examples of recent developments, systems that could be successfully applied in Indian power plants are identified. The challenges facing Indian utilities are also considered. The new Indian standards have created opportunities for equipment manufacturers, as well as a need for global technology leaders to modify their products to meet local market requirements, particularly high ash content coal.
  • Creating Modern Business Foundations upon Hybrid IT Infrastructures
    Creating Modern Business Foundations upon Hybrid IT Infrastructures Todd Traver, Vice President, IT Optimization and Strategy, Uptime Institute Recorded: Feb 15 2018 50 mins
    Modern businesses are being transformed into digital businesses. To do so, IT is being re-imagined to span hybrid infrastructures; including multiple data centers, co-location facilities and cloud service providers. This hybrid approach has many benefits including cost savings, but can increase the overall difficulty in supporting such environments to deliver a predictable level of IT services. We’ll discuss one methodology designed to assess your current risk profile and spot vulnerabilities.
  • Tsunami! The Forthcoming Wave of Liquid Cooling in the Data Centre
    Tsunami! The Forthcoming Wave of Liquid Cooling in the Data Centre John Booth, CEO, Carbon3 IT Recorded: Feb 15 2018 35 mins
    This webinar will cover the challenges of scaling up of liquid cooling technologies in the data centre space.

    About the presenter:
    The subject of sustainable and green data centres is very close to my heart. For many years I have been increasingly concerned with the ever increasing requirement for power that the information age requires and we built our business on explaining to organisations that they were wasting energy and overcooling server rooms as well as consulting on green IT issues from device to disposal.

    The EURECA project will deliver a tool that public sector IT managers can use to benchmark their current actions and see what the current standards and latest concepts are and how to implement easy solutions to make a real difference. I have been lucky enough to see some state-of-the-art public sector data centres such as the University of St Andrews that have adopted the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres and been awarded a GOLD CEEDA and how the management used the project to promote wider sustainability concepts to the rest of the university and beyond. At the other end of the scale there remains much work to be done in data centres/server rooms across the public sector to capitalise on the fast moving and sometimes daunting array of technologies and methodologies on offer.

  • Does Hyper-Converged Infrastructure live up to the Hype?
    Does Hyper-Converged Infrastructure live up to the Hype? Andrew Scott, Global DC Manager, GKN PLC Recorded: Feb 13 2018 40 mins
    This is the story of why one enterprise chose HCI and how the hype stacked up in their real world.

    ‘Cloud’ is a marketing term used to groups many offerings things that differ quite a bit from each other. Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is a little more specific than Cloud, but companies still find it has the same potential to be confusing and ambiguous. There are many different players in the market, each with their own view on why what they deliver is the real HCI.

    Andrew Scott runs in house data centers for a large automotive engineering company. He and his team spent a fair amount of time working out the real benefits HCI brought and then, which of the many vendors should be shortlisted to test. They implemented HCI in 2017, this is some of what they learned along the way.
