Energy Efficiency: The Software-Oriented Approach
December 28th, 2011 By: Michael Potts
Power efficiency is becoming a primary concern to data centers. Advances in server equipment technologies and computing power have placed a premium on effective energy efficiency measures in the data center.
This white paper from Square D details the steps to successfully implementing an energy efficiency strategy through software. It explains the importance of data-interpreting software to efficiency management and the ways this software assists in the implementation process. It demonstrates the importance of measuring energy metric and developing an energy baseline, and provides benchmark historical and current performances as examples. Next, it stresses the importance of energy modeling, which allows predictions of energy use in the system under various parameters, the hardware used to create these models, and the software installed on these devices. Finally, it offers strategies to cut energy consumption and methods that allow its control in real-time.
