5 ways to improve data center energy efficiency

5 Ways to Improve Data Center 

Energy Efficiency with PDUs 

How can you tame runaway IT energy costs – the biggest operating expense in your

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

data center? Several factors impact data center energy use: cooling and

 

 

 

 

 

temperature levels, water consumption, lighting, IT equipment efficiency, etc. In

 

 

 

 

future blogs, we’ll focus in more detail on each of these factors. Today, however,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

we’re uncovering ways to use ​power distribution units (PDUs) to improve data

center energy efficiency. 

   

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Calculate

effectiveness (PUE): 

 

energy

 

metrics,

 

such

 

as

 

power

 

usage

 

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again (and again): You can’t manage what you

 

   

 

 

 

   

don’t measure. PUE is a widely accepted benchmarking standard from Green Grid

 

 

     

 

 

that helps data center managers determine energy efficiency by measuring how

 

 

 

 

 

effectively data centers use input power. It provides insights into efficiency

 

 

 

 

 

efforts, and can also help determine when something has gone awry. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

monitor energy usage trends

 

Monitor Energy-Usage Trends:  

If you’re not monitoring energy usage, how will you ever know consumption gets out

 

 

 

 

 

 

of hand? Manually or physically monitoring each of your PDUs individually would be

 

 

 

 

 

extremely difficult; collecting the information in a database allows you to monitor

 

 

 

 

rack-level power information, store the data, trend it and then use it to make

 

 

 

 

 

decisions about your data center. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Improve capacity planning:  

Is your data center at power capacity? At surface level, it may appear to be – but

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

when you employ intelligent PDUs to perform outlet-level monitoring, you can

 

 

 

 

 

 

pinpoint areas within the data center where simple equipment rearrangement may

 

 

 

 

 

 

free up power or improve safety by moving equipment that is close to circuit limit. 

Optimize device-level performance: 

 

 

   

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you can calculate operating costs for each device on your network – from

 

 

 

 

 

 

servers to storage equipment – and know how much power each device uses, you can

 

 

 

   

 

 

easily identify the energy hogs. You can also use ​device-level performance metrics

to determine whether a more efficient device would be worth the investment by

 

 

   

 

 

comparing how much “work” you receive from the device in relationship to the

 

 

 

 

 

amount of power it consumes. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

quickly correct environmental changes

Quickly correct environmental changes: 

Failed power supply, temperature increases, a sudden surge in power usage … these

 

 

 

 

changes can all be identified by an intelligent PDU. When PDUs alert you to these

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

types of environmental or performance changes via E-mail or text, you’ll learn

 

 

 

 

 

about – and be able to act upon – the changes before they turn into a major issue

   

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

that causes downtime and lost revenue.
