Using Virtualization and Digital Control Technologies to Increase Data Center Operating Efficiency
The first avenue of exploration begins with specifying the proper server, software, and infrastructure suite to properly position the data center for monitoring, communicating, adapting and controlling. To that end, data center professionals should start by asking for the most efficient power supply available.
With the proper server, power and cooling infrastructure in place, the deployment of server power monitoring capability can be implemented across the data center, reaching out to the associated power and cooling equipment rooms. This system, once tuned and backed with sufficient real-world time-of-day, day-of-week/month, and seasonal utilization models, can be used to maximize asset utilization and reduce operating expenses.
