Finding an efficient way to cool data center is the top priority for IT staff since managing energy actively results in 40 percent or more energy savings, considering that a data center can consume 10 to 100 times more energy per square foot than the average office building.
Considering that organizations are switching to high density servers for optimization of technologies such as virtualization, IT directors are aware that making the right decisions regarding power management will improve the data center efficiency and the lifespan of the servers and other IT equipment.
Overlooking power monitoring, on the other hand, can lead to increased costs, lower efficiency and a higher carbon footprint.
You can manage it if you can monitor it!
In order to optimize the data center power consumption, you need to have the ability to monitor not only power but the whole data center environment. This will allow you to manage the environmental conditions to suit your particular equipment requirements. Combine this data with effective power monitoring and you can fine-tune the data center to run at it’s most optimal level maximizing your Power Usage Efficiency (PUE).
