The cost of energy continues to be variable, but trending ever upwards. As Data centres are very energy hungry, more emphasis is being placed on how to control energy costs.
This report by Clive Longbottom looks at various approaches that data centre owners can use to control their energy costs and create long term energy sustainability around their IT platforms.
The growth in the importance of data centres around the world in supporting the global economy means that there is increasingfocus on how well data centres are performing in themselves.
The poor levels of overall energy utilisation are being seen by organisations and governments as a cause for concern, and data centre managers must have tactical and strategic plans in place in order to show how energy costs are to be controlled across their IT platform, and how any activity will support an organisation’s sustainability activities.
