How much electricity does your enterprise server platform? And how efficient is your data center?

An analysis of these parameters is essential for all IT managers to assess the real and to undertake a serious policy to reduce consumption in order to optimize performance and reduce costs.

This analysis becomes essential when there are cases of power failure.
In this circumstance, in fact, the total load of the CED is supported by the UPS, however that are able to stand for a limited period of time.
If the power does not come back and generators are not available, the EDC would be in the position of not having more energy and would inevitably crash.

How to avoid it?

 Know IT managers the energy efficiency of their infrastructure?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recently produced a report on the efficiency of energy within the data center and found that the use of electricity has quadrupled over the course of 10 years (2000-2010).

The Green Grid, a consortium that brings together IT managers oriented towards a new awareness of "green" has drawn appropriate metrics to measure the energy consumption of the CED.

Data center large, powerful servers, cooling systems always "in" and desktops running 24 hours on 24, weigh heavily on the business in terms of energy and cost.

Are IT managers able to value if the cooling system is adapted to the real needs of the data center?

Many existing facilities are not designed for the power density that is currently installed or planned. The addition of a cooling system in the data center or network equipment existing can be  very difficult and expensive. The loads are changed frequently and it is difficult to determine if the cooling system cools sufficiently or wasting energy where needed.
