How Understanding Power Consumption Can Lead to a More Efficient Data Center
Data center managers are continuously faced with the challenge of providing increased levels of power in subsequently reduced areas of space. They must achieve these feats all while adhering to budget constraints, maintaining mission critical levels of both uptime and reliability, and reducing stress on existing data center infrastructures. This seemingly impossible task is only made possible by leveraging the right approach to power monitoring at the outlet, circuit breaker, and inlet levels. Unfortunately, far too many businesses opt for data center solutions that use outdated power monitoring solutions that are unable to provide the insights, alerts, and fail-safes needed to create a scalable, reliable, and agile IT infrastructure.
