The annual conference and expo event known as DatacenterDynamics Converged attracted in excess of 900 professional attendees to the Marriott Hotel, New York, March 14-15, 2017. Attendees included data center owners, consulting engineers alongside infrastructure and service providers.
The event offered a multitude of expert panels, keynote presentations, interactive workshops and roundtable sessions all focusing on the mission-critical data center market.
The theme for 2017 had an increasing focus on renewable energy, the Internet of Things (IOT) and big data, all of which Cummins has been at the forefront of in developing standby power solutions to suit the requirements of the data center customer.
Dave Matuseki, Cummins Mission Critical Technical Leader, presented on the Solutions Stage a key topic for the market: “Diesel Generators in the Data Center – When to Go Big.” The session reviewed the benefits of using large generators for the highest power density, reliability and optimal total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centers, which are key requirements for data center design. The presentation featured the Cummins QSK95 Series generator set rated up to 3.5 MW, which is ideal for the data center market offering More Power. More Performance. More Reliability.
As a follow-up to the event, Cummins would like to invite you to attend a PowerHour webinar on Tuesday, April 11 on the same topic. The presentation will discuss the advantages of using big generators (3 MW and above), the benefits of a paralleling architecture design, variations on data center power system architectures to achieve concurrent maintainability and fault tolerance.
