An Improved Architecture for High-Efficiency, High-Density Data Centers
Since conventional legacy data centers don't use proven designs incorporating readily available power and cooling equipment, they operate much less efficiently than they could.
One key finding of this paper is that high-efficiency devices are not sufficient to ensure high-efficiency in the data center. An architecture and strategy that uses such high-efficiency equipment in an efficient manner, and reduces over-sizing, is just as important as efficient hardware itself. In fact, by combining high-efficiency equipment with an effective architecture, your IT shop can save up to 40% of the total electrical power of the data center. This white paper shows you how to get started.
