Plus make your Data Centers More Productive and Reliable.
Please join Rich Miller and Intel’s Jeff Klaus April 25 for a webinar, titled, Is It Worth 60 Minutes to Save Up to 30 Percent in Data Center Operation Costs?, where they will explain Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and its contributions to managing power and cooling usage in the data center.
Klaus will focus on the servers that account for the majority of the power consumed in the data center and explain how managers can introduce a 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.
Identifying temperatures at the server, versus at the room or even rack levels, can also help data center managers more accurately understand what the real ambient temperature should be for individual servers to have optimal lifespans. This assessment of real temperatures has enabled data centers to increase the overall room temperature by one to two degrees, which can represent a savings in excess of 30% the air-conditioning expense.
This Data Center Knowledge Webinar on DCIM will take place on April 25 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. Pacific. Please register today and be sure to participate in the Q&A session, asking your questions on these case studies as well as your questions on DCIM and data center efficiency.
