Where Passive RFID Asset Tracking Fails, Active RFID Succeeds

Posted by Tom Larson on Fri, May 13, 2016

Passive RFID for asset tracking has been attempted by many, but with fairly poor results.  With the exception of tracking media, and possibly hard drives being stored for disposal or redeployment, passive usually fails to achieve the main objectives of automating your IT asset tracking process.  To be clear, passive RFID solutions can be better than manual or barcode solutions, but it tends to fall short in these four key areas:

Tech Trends: How Subscription Pricing Reduces Data Center Costs for the "Little Guys"

Posted by Gregg Primm on Wed, May 11, 2016

There has been a growing trend of bringing data centers to the masses. While many of the country’s largest companies own or lease vast amounts of space with hundreds of servers and an appropriately robust staff to manage them, this is not a model that’s conducive to the needs of every business. Moving traditional data center services to the cloud has done much to help small and mid-sized organizations, as the costs of deploying and maintaining IT resources onsite can be eliminated, but the real savings that smaller scale companies urgently need can be found in subscription pricing cloud services for data centers. Without having to worry about capital expenditures and IT asset allocation, both newcomers and experienced (yet small) data center staff can spend more time focusing on what’s most important: developing operational expertise in real-time and effective data center management.

Tech Trends: The Importance of Monitoring in Hot-Aisle Containment

Posted by Gregg Primm on Tue, Apr 26, 2016

Thoughts from Datacenter Dynamics Enterprise

While exhibiting at the recent DatacenterDynamics Enterprise event in New York City, I had the opportunity to attend a thought-provoking session from Sabey Data Centers: Technology innovation in the data center - improving PUE and WUE and the Mobile Commissioning Assistant. While the VP of Operations was highlighting the different designs and builds of their data centers, he also addressed the different cooling models that each facility used. It was interesting to learn how the various data centers dealt with cooling by using different techniques, each unique to the facility’s layout and surrounding environment. It led me to think about the link between cooling and RF Code’s work in data center optimization, and how no cooling model can be complete without a variety of monitoring solutions.

The Tenant's Plight

Posted by Sylverre Polhemus on Mon, Mar 14, 2016

The RF Code main office renovation was supposed to be minor: a little paint, some reconfigured cubicles, a few new pieces of equipment. Nothing disruptive. The work taking place in the offices next door was rather more substantial—and some of that spilled over into our space.
