Data center energy consumption is being driven by the demand within almost every organization for greater computing capacity and increased IT centralization. Our speaker will explore the top 10 energy saving opportunities that show reductions in energy consumption at the IT equipment level having the greatest impact on overall consumption due to a cascading effect across all supporting systems. He will demonstrate how each of these ten opportunities was applied to a 5,000-square-foot data center model based on real-world technologies and operating parameters. The model was able to quantify savings specifically through strategies in efficient IT technologies, considerations for power management software, and employing a combination of best practices to increase efficiency of power and cooling systems. Our speaker will conclude his presentation by discussing how their model identifies gaps in existing technologies that could enable greater energy reductions through alternative equipment deployment, which can lead to better efficiency decisions with in the data center.
