5 Reasons Data Center’s Availability, Capacity and Efficiency are being Compromised

January 22, 2019 10:34 pm Published by Comments Off on 5 Reasons Data Center’s Availability, Capacity and Efficiency are being Compromised

Data center owner-operators are increasingly looking for solutions to minimize total cost of ownership, cost per kW of IT load, and downtime. This paper explains the five main contributors to runaway data center costs, then introduces the ACE performance score and the continuous modeling process. Using both, this paper briefly explains how they are helping owner-operators save millions of dollars annually per data hall. Could ‘minimize’ be the verb that best sums up a data center owner-operator’s ultimate objective? Think about it, whatever business you’re in, and whichever type of data center(s) you own, you almost certainly want to minimize one or...

Optimizing Your Data Center Efficiency

July 2, 2018 3:40 am Published by Comments Off on Optimizing Your Data Center Efficiency

5 Easy Steps Optimizing Your Data Center Efficiency Optimizing data center power usage is an important concern for data center managers. However, they continue to face challenges because power is one factor of increasing the percentage of data center operating costs. The cost per kwh and demand is also increasing, mainly due to the high power density on the server. This results in an increase in the cost of electricity used at least 10% per year. In the next five years, the average data center operating expenses (opex) will increase to 15%. Increased power usage of IT equipment can result...
