Data centers are increasingly finding value in moving servers to the cloud, especially over the course of the last year as businesses shifted to more remote-work operations.
During these migrations, it’s not uncommon to leave behind or keep servers that aren’t in use anymore. Unfortunately, these underutilized servers, sometimes called “ghost servers,” can add millions of dollars to an energy bill and place unnecessary demand on resources. And at some point, it becomes very difficult to manage what you can’t see, or measure.
In a technical tip from Chatsworth Products (CPI), find out:
- How a two-pronged approach can help enable the identification and decommission of underutilized servers, and ensure significant savings
- Why the evaluation of intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) and Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software is critical to ensuring security, optimizing system performance and efficiency, and reducing costs
- How taking a new approach can help data center operators make faster, smarter decisions about their data center assets, while also simplifying operations and optimizing operation
