Waste Management predicts its annual savings on straight energy usage translates to approximately 11.3% or greater, along with a power factor correction savings, resulting in combined savings of more than 13.2% annually. "Our power factor was low at 0.75 and it has improved considerably to 0.88,"

Midas XCI immersion cooling technology allows you to maximize the server density, power efficiency and minimize physical footprint.

An Alcatex Christmas Story!

Posted by Allison Boen

Wed, 17 Dec, 2014 @ 10:00 PM


T'was the night before Christmas when all through the Data Center,

Not a creature was stirring, and no one could enter.


The hard drives hung with the utmost of care,

in the eager hopes that the IT would soon be there.


The cables were nestled all connected to the Web,

while info and emails danced in their threads.


As computers shut down, and all servers went black,

the CPU's looked ready for a long Winter's nap.


Where out on the lawn, there rose such a clatter,

the Generator fired up, making every doubt scatter.


Have a very Alcatastic Christmas!

Always remember and never forget:

If you are leaving an existing Data Center to move to a COLO, consolidate your data centers or moving to a new facility, we want to buy your old equipment!

Alcatex has over 20 years of experience removing data center equipment. Our references include many of the Fortune 100.

Generators, like this unit removed from a site in CT last weekend, are tailored to each location and customers needs to help recover part of your investment.
