The Role of UPS Power Management in Virtualisation and Cloud Computing
By Eaton | 31/1/2012
Virtualisation in IT has brought many significant benefits and changed the way data centres are designed and operated. In a virtualised data centre, applications, services and databases run on fewer physical servers than before and the operator makes significant savings in power consumption, cooling and infrastructure expenditure.

Is your data center ready for virtualisation? Important power considerations for virtualised IT environments
By Eaton | 31/1/2012
Virtualisation brings the potential to deliver dramatic savings in terms of server count, footprint, power consumption and cooling requirements for data centers. For all its advantages though, virtualisation also brings some unique challenges. The power and cooling infrastructure—which may have been quite sufficient for pre-virtualization needs—could easily become inadequate when data center performance patterns are radically altered. The good news is that there are practical and affordable ways to address these challenges and improve data center efficiency in the process. This paper looks at some of the power-related challenges and the readily available technologies to address them.

Increasing Uptime and Efficiency with Switched PDUs - Two ways to use rack PDUs for more than just distributing power
By Eaton | 31/1/2012
Power distribution units (PDUs) play an essential role in delivering power safely and at appropriate voltages to servers and other network resources. A particular class of power distribution units known as rack Switched PDUs, however, is capable of performing additional functions that can help data center managers improve the efficiency and reliability of their IT infrastructure. This paper provides a brief introduction to rack Switched PDUs and describes two underappreciated yet powerful ways to take advantage of their advanced functionality.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
