Ask the Engineer – What can be done to become more energy efficient and incorporate Green IT in the Data Center?

Posted by Bob Parente on Jan 8, 2011 10:01:00 AM

Not only for the environmental reasons that you may expect, but for the economic benefits seen by incorporating Green IT in the data centers. Going “green” means measuring, analyzing and controlling power usage to enable effective capacity planning along with aptitude to make change for decreased usage – all leading to improved efficiency and a controlled carbon footprint.

Ask the Engineer – What considerations should be made when selecting a ‘power-strip’, or Server Technology CDU (Cabinet power Distribution Unit) to power the IT equipment in my rack/cabinet?

In most cases it is much more than ‘simply considering the power-strip hardware configuration’.  How a Power distribution solution is implemented can lead to reduced downtime, improved power efficiencies, improved power monitoring, management and control.  The best suited Power Distribution solution requires considerable planning.  First, system solution level questions must be evaluated (1), key issues determined (2), and then the required CDU features can be realized (3).
