With more users, more devices and many more connections coming into the cloud – the data center has become an integral part of any IT infrastructure. There is much more reliance on data center operations and there is a direct need for optimal efficiency.
This leads to an increased demand for controlling data center components that goes far beyond hardware management and advanced cooling systems. The complexity of the modern environment calls for a more holistic energy optimization solution.
Accurate monitoring of power consumption and thermal patterns creates a foundation for enterprise-wide decision making with the ability to:
- Monitor and analyze power data by server, rack, row, or room;
- Track usage for logical groups of resources that correlate to the organization or data center services;
- Automate condition alerts and triggered power controls based on consumption or thermal conditions and limits; and
- Provide aggregated and fine-grained data to web-accessible consoles and dashboards, for intuitive views of energy use that are integrated with other data center and facilities management views.
Moderated by Data Center Knowledge Editor-in-Chief Rich Miller, this webinar will feature an in-depth conversation with Intel’s Jeff Klaus, General Manager of Data Center Manager (DCM) Solutions. The webinar will revolve around specific use cases as they apply to real data center situations. For example, in a jointly tested POC conducted over a three-month period in late 2011 at Korea Telecom’s existing Mok-dong Data Centre in Seoul, South Korea, results showed that a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.39 would result in approximately 27 percent energy savings. This could be achieved by using a 22◦C chilled water loop.
The 60-minute online conversation will explain Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and its contributions to managing power and cooling usage in the data center. For example, identifying temperatures at the server, versus at the room or even rack levels, can help data center managers more accurately understand what the real ambient temperature should be for individual servers to have optimal lifespans. Register today to join Rich Miller of Data Center Knowledge and Intel’s Jeff Klaus on April 25, 2013 (2:00pm-3:00pm EDT) to learn how these types of assessments can represent a significant savings in data center environment management.
