Can You Afford Lost Data Center Capacity?
February 21st, 2012 By: Michael Potts
On March 6 Future Facilities will host their “Can You Afford Lost Capacity” webinar at 8am PST and 11am PST. IT loading capacity has become a major investment for companies. High costs assure that every MW of the purchased capacity must be put to good use. Despite this, few data centers ever utilize their loading capacity to its full potential.
In many corporate, government and colocation facilities, the failure to predict temperature and airflow consequences prior deploying new IT equipment and supporting infrastructure causes a loss of up to forty percent of electrical loading capacity. Poor data center planning can also reduce the lifetime of critical data center infrastructure, leading to premature build outs.
“At up to thirty million dollars per megawatt, IT loading capacity is a major capital investment for any company,” said Sherman Ikemoto, General Manager, Future Facilities NA. “Data center space, power, cooling and networking resources must be put to good use or else available capacity will be lost. During this webinar attendees will learn how to predict resource utilization outcomes before IT equipment is installed, allowing for saved capacity and improved efficiency.”
How is capacity lost? Can it be regained? This webinar from Future Facilities will answer these questions, as well as present a case study illustrating the impact of a new data center management methodology that integrates CFD analysis, IT configuration management and workflow to predict, visualize and solve space, power and cooling capacity issues before committing changes to the data center.
