Saving Energy in the Data Centre Industry - white paper

Saving energy in the data centre industryThere are a number of ways that a typical data centre is able to reduce energy and CO2 consumption using Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software. Typically, these energy savings are made through a process of iterative improvements following the identification of potential savings in the areas detailed in this white paper.

We explore a range of topics and their relation to helping save energy in the data centre, including:

  • Base-lining power usage in the data centre.
  • Monitoring and managing the efficiency of cooling equipment.
  • Environmental management.
  • Monitoring power and cost at server, OS and application level.
  • Defining IT efficiency metrics.
  • Identifying under-used, faulty or inefficient IT equipment.
  • Switching off or capping power for equipment when they are not in use.
  • Managing assets to understand OPEX costs against CAPEX costs.
  • Driving highly efficient virtualisation strategies.
  • Active Control of IT and supporting infrastructure.
  • Perceived barriers to the adoption of energy-saving software in the Data Centre Industry.
  • Data Centre Infrastructure Management and its relation to UK Energy saving incentives.
