Pete Sacco, Founder & President of PTS Data Center Solutions, wrote a recent article for Data Center Knowledge. With the high cost of power, efficient data center design can lead to significant monthly operational savings.
The article discusses various issues related to energy efficiency including performing initial assessments to develop a baseline, analyzing facility support infrastructure and IT infrastructure opportunities to reduce load, implementing changes, and measuring the resulting improvements in efficiency.
Ultimately, it appears from analysis and testing, the best way to significant reductions in power consumption is to reduce the overall IT load which delivers reductions in IT power consumption as well as reductions in power related to cooling that same IT load.
