Power Monitoring for Modern Data Centers
April 27th, 2011 By: Kevin Normandeau
Modern data center power monitoring systems look nothing like the basic electricity meters from which they evolved. Today’s systems comprise sophisticated metering devices, communication networks and software. This brief white paper from Schneider Electric looks at the evolution of the data center monitoring systems and outlines several key guidelines for deployment.
By their nature, mission critical facilities such as Internet data centers are prime candidates for power monitoring systems. By employing monitoring systems to analyze system-wide historical and real-time power data, facility managers can reduce the cost of electricity and improve its quality and reliability.
Where high accuracy metering, disturbance recording, transient detection or harmonic analysis is needed, there is no substitute for power monitors. So if you’re going to deploy power monitors in a data center, this paper offers several key guidelines to keep in mind. Click here to download this white paper.
