Software-defined Power: Ideal Energy Efficiency in Isolated Server Rack

Software-defined power is the future of energy technology. We have updated our last server rack video to include the automatic phase balancing which eliminates neutral current and reduces operational costs for data centers.

 

Key Highlights: Dynamically addressing harmonics and power factor, automatically balancing power loads across the phases, real time streaming server rack data.

 

With an innovative combination of electronic hardware, computer hardware, and artificial intelligence software, The 3DFS software defined power solution seamlessly integrates into datacenter electrical networks for ideal electrical efficiency, elimination of utility penalties, dynamic stability, and zero waste.

    Your solution looks to be of best value for companies who operate and own data centers as they pay for everything end to end – however I believe there is enough value in the technology for resellers as well. I would think that when phases are balanced the the amount of UPS run-time and capacity will increase that alone should be your selling point.

    I am intrigued in this technology, basically you are digitizing the power grid in a data-center.

    This would work so well on audio racks
