4 Ways to Turn Data Center Green

  1. 1. DATA CENTER GREEN Ways to Turn4
  2. 2. How green is your data center? If you don't care now, you will soon. Most data center managers haven't noticed the steady rise in electricity costs, since they don't usually see those bills. But they do see the symptoms of surging power demands. High-density servers are creating hot spots in data centers that have surpassed 30 kilowatts per rack for some high-end systems. As a result, some data center managers are finding that they can't get enough power distributed out to those racks on the floor. Still others are finding that they can't get more power to the building: they've maxed out the power utility's ability to deliver additional capacity to that location.
  3. 3. CONSOLIDATE YOUR SERVERS, AND CONSOLIDATE SOME MORE Existing data centers can achieve substantial savings by making just a few basic changes, and consolidating servers is a good place to start. Nowadays system makes adjustments dynamically as workloads change. In this way, workloads might be consolidated in the evening during off-hours, and then reallocated across more physical machines in the morning, as activity increases.
  4. 4. CONDUCT A BASELINE ENERGY AUDIT Any green data center initiative should start with a baseline energy audit. The baseline audit provides both a real-time assessment of usage and efficiency and a benchmark for future assessments to guide long term planning.� Because data centers are comprised of a variety of diverse and interconnected systems, it's critical to drill down into individual systems to pinpoint where inefficiencies reside within the infrastructure. From there, the energy audit assesses the impact of these inefficiencies on total usage and outlines a tangible and trackable remediation plan.�
  5. 5. DESIGN MODULAR DATA CENTERS Prefabricated data center solutions accelerate the speed of business through delivering modular packages for data center facility managers. �These pre-engineered solutions target specific parameters, including deployment speed, performance, reliability, and cost reduction. Modular datacenters like those in remodeled shipping containers provide organizations more flexibility for satisfying their computation demand while saving the resources and space required to build an entirely new data center.�
  6. 6. PRIORITIZE THE REDUCTION OF DATA CENTER POWER USAGE To reduce data center power use, it's critically important to lower the amount of energy required to power the IT equipment. In fact, 60 percent of payload power is consumed by servers. To decrease this power drain, data center managers should focus on consolidating and virtualizing workloads, eliminating powered servers that are dormant, and replacing old servers with newer models.� � �
