Software-Based Energy Efficiency Strategies
March 14th, 2012 By: Michael Potts
Advances in server technologies and increased load densities have lead to a growing energy consumption concern among data centers. Energy efficiency is thus of high priority to the data center and its operators.
This white paper from Schneider Electric outlines a software-based approach to the data gathering, trending, and analysis that are necessary to apply successful energy efficiency measures within the data center. First it discusses the growing importance of energy efficiency and offers methods of measuring its effects. Next, it details the process of implementing an energy efficiency plan, defining energy baselines and metrics while offering industry benchmark references. Lastly, it reviews the importance of modeling, the data required for monitoring energy efficiency, and trend analysis.
Learn the importance of energy efficiency, and the methods used to create an efficient data center infrastructure. Click here to download this white paper on a software-based strategy for implementing energy efficiency in your data center.
