Impact of IT Upgrades on Energy Usage and Operational Cost
With the high costs of power, energy efficiency has rapidly become a critical consideration when evaluating data center performance. It is, perhaps, second only to performance when deciding upon data center facility and network design. Higher energy consumption is a recurring cost that can add dramatically to operating expense over time. Furthermore, devices that consume more power require more cooling which not only further increases energy costs but impacts the physical design of the data center.
Through this white paper, PTS Data Center Solutions (PTS) personnel validate these energy efficiency savings estimates using the upgrade of the IT system within its own data center facility and operations as a test bed.
