Involta | January 31, 2023
On January 30, 2023, an Industry leading hybrid IT, data center, and cloud computing services company, Involta, announced its flexible and robust DRaaS+ (Disaster Recovery as a Service) offering. The new three-tiered model DRaaS+ is designed to offer the right service level for securing essential business data and systems. The service offered is built on Involta's proven track record, and it has provided leading DRaaS solutions since 2015 and is an immediate result of client feedback.
Business continuity is essential for companies today, but research shows that 93% of enterprises that lost their data center for more than ten days because of a disaster went out of business within a year. Many companies without data management in the same period filed for immediate bankruptcy. Involta's DRaaS+ provides a next-gen service model that focuses on business outcomes rather than only on infrastructure delivery.
Involta's top-notch infrastructure and industry-leading software can provide this solution quickly and precisely when and where it is most needed, such as in the aftermath of a disastrous natural event or cyberattack. The additional benefits of the software include 100% infrastructure and platform SLA for all service tires, no egress fees, expert engineer guidance for DR declaration, and allowance of predictable cost structure for various compute consumption models.
Jim Buie, President, and CEO of Involta, said, "Ensuring businesses can bounce back from a disruptive event is no small feat. Staggering numbers paint a gloomy picture where most businesses will simply not survive a catastrophic data loss." He also commented, "We are delighted to offer a full range of disaster recovery services designed to offer the level of support our enterprise customers need, all housed in Involta's owned, purpose-built, enterprise-grade data centers."

Infinitum | February 07, 2023
On February 06, 2023, Infinitum, one of the air core motor producers, launched, a brand new Aircore electrically commutated EC motor designed especially for data center’s cooling applications, reducing their power and energy consumption.
Customized for the data center cooling application's power, speed, and torque requirements, it enhances motor performance. In addition, it reduces energy consumption by about 10-15%, minimizing input current, reducing the wiring and protection urgencies of the electric unit, and thus saving costs on wiring, transformers, circuit breakers, and upstream electric infrastructure.
It features an integrated variable frequency drive (VFD), optimizing motor control and efficiency, with IoT connectivity to monitor critical equipment, BACnet and Modbus controllers, transforming building operations. It is about 50% smaller, lighter, more efficient, and quieter than traditional motors, using over 66% less copper than previous models with a sustainable circular lifecycle. Its modular design has reusable rotors, housing, and stators, increasing the model's life.
Senior Market Analyst at Interact Analysis, Blake Griffin, said, "Data centers are growing in size and energy intensity as the world's demand for data grows exponentially." He added, "Infinitum's smaller, lighter, high-efficiency motor systems are a key technology for reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint."

Infinitum has made electric motors more durable, efficient, lighter, and cost-effective since 2016. Headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, it works with manufacturers and industrial OEMs to customize the technology for specific applications and market sectors worldwide. It provides broad applications across multiple industries by utilizing patent-pending Printed Circuit Board (PCB) stator technology. It produces Aircore EC, an integrated motor and drive; Aircore Mobility, for mobility applications; and Aircore Power Gen, the motor alternator, with applications like fans, pumps, mobility, and power generators. It has obtained patents from different countries worldwide for its various systems, applications, and apparatus.

Napatech | February 23, 2023
At the upcoming MWC23 in Barcelona, Napatech, Advantech, and A5G Networks, Inc. will present their latest high-capacity mobile edge network infrastructure solution at Napatech's booth #7B67. Napatech is a top programmable SmartNICs provider for DPU and IPU services. At the same time, Advantech is a global leader in Industrial IoT, and A5G Networks, Inc. specializes in Distributed and Autonomous 5G Core Network Software.
As private networks leveraging edge computing become increasingly popular for applications like industrial automation, connected vehicles, smart retail, and healthcare, enterprises and communications service providers are working to ensure their commercial viability. One key factor is making these networks cost-effective, which involves maximizing the number of subscribers or devices that can be assisted in a small-footprint server, allowing for deployment across a wide range of use cases.
At MWC23, A5G Networks, Advantech, and Napatech will exhibit their integrated solution, which maximizes the cost-performance of mobile edge infrastructure by deploying ANoNCore software from A5G Networks on small-footprint SKY 8000 telco servers from Advantech. In addition, these servers have SmartNICs from Napatech that accelerate the compute-intensive User Plane Function, improving the ANoNCore software's performance and network energy efficiency while reducing overall server costs.
