In today’s world, it is almost impossible to discuss any business operation without considering efficiency. In the data center realm, maximizing the energy efficiency without impacting the reliability should be the goal of virtually every data center owner or operator. The path to that goal involves some basic design and practices issues, as well as more sophisticated methodologies.
Energy represents one of the most significant operating costs in the data center. Moreover, based on current and foreseeable trends, the basic price of energy will continue to rise over time, and may become constrained as global demands rise, making energy use and efficiency a long term business priority.
This one-hour webinar will examine the more detailed aspects, such as the tradeoff between energy efficiency vs. redundancy, the potential energy savings derived from the expanded use of “Free Cooling” and the potential use of sustainable energy sources, as well as other data-center-specific energy issues.
Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session with your peers, Julius and industry experts from Digital Realty. Sign up today and you will receive further instructions via e-mail about the webinar. We invite you to join the conversation.
