SACRAMENTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/04/12 -- RagingWire Data Centers, the nation's premier data center provider, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 8,212,401 covering a system and method for consistently providing power throughout a facility without the risk of power interruption. This patented technology is the core of RagingWire's N-Matrix monitoring and management system and 2N+2 architecture.
"RagingWire's data center design raises the bar for the data center industry," said George Macricostas, chairman, CEO, and founder of RagingWire and one of the inventors awarded this patent. "The system and method we invented and now have patented is one of the key reasons we are able to deliver 100% availability. We are proud to have been recognized by the United States Patent and Trademark Office."
Power distribution systems are used in facilities to convert transmitted high voltage energy supplied by the power utility to energy that is suitable for its intended use and to deliver that energy within the facility. These facilities (e.g., hospitals, data centers, etc.) have a load (e.g., computers, heating and air conditioning equipment, etc.) to which the energy is delivered by the power distribution system. The RagingWire patent provides for a design that allows out of service maintenance of critical equipment without a reduction in redundancy.
The patented design enables a data center architecture that RagingWire describes as 2N+2. This highly available approach has two redundant paths (2N) from the utility power to the server rack and a collection of interconnected bus network topologies that provide dynamic access to a pool of generators, uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), and batteries. This bus topology design is described in the industry as an N+2 configuration where N is the number of devices you need and 2 is the number of available spare devices. The 2N+2 architecture combined with RagingWire's programmable logic controllers (PLCs) forms N-Matrix, the monitoring and management system embedded throughout RagingWire's data center campuses.
Charles Linkhart, RagingWire's chief engineer and primary inventor in the patent award, said, "For high-availability data centers, 2N is not enough. This patent is the foundation for RagingWire's unique 2N+2 technology which allows any active component -- UPS, generator, chiller, pump, fan, switchboard -- to be removed from service, then experience a utility outage, and then have any other active component fail, all without a loss of power or cooling to the server rack."
While other data center colocation providers typically exclude maintenance windows from their service level commitments, RagingWire offers a 100% uptime SLA -- even during maintenance windows. The combination of innovation, infrastructure, and best-practices allows RagingWire to deliver this unique 100% service level agreement (SLA).

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
