Q: Do you have AC or DC power support?
One of the topics of discussion has been the question of DC power in the data center. Are we going to look at DC power in the future? Do we need to consider the boxes that are being shipped operating for AC power? What tools do we need, and what does the customer need to think about, when switching over to DC in order to get the reported benefits of DC power in the data center? Power and cooling are the main costs of running your data center now, more so than hardware.
