Data center facilities management: Are you close to total failure?

With all of the advancements that happen inside of your data center, it's easy to forget to update facilities management strategy. Here's the thing: overheated servers and cooling failures are worse than power failures.

You need to keep track of your data center's physical needs, and there is a good chance that you are using outdated metrics.

This e-guide will help you re-evaluate your data center's physical metrics and update your facilities management strategy.

  • Green initiatives are delivering disappointing ROIs for today's data centers

    Since controlling power consumption represents a significant expenditure of time, money, and effort, data center managers need to consider all power reduction solutions at their disposal – from flywheels to eco-mode UPS systems to other efficient alternatives. 

    This expert handbook will help guide you through the decision-making process of “greening the data center”. Readers will learn how these methods—along with others—help to provide a smaller footprint while still allowing for higher power density.

  • Powering down: Keeping datacentre energy costs in check

    Energy costs are consistently the biggest outgoing for every datacentre operator, regardless of how big or small they are.

    And it is for precisely this reason that so many of them are fixated on finding ways to improve the energy efficiency of their facilities and, in turn, trim their power costs.

    This has seen the likes of Google, for example, push the envelope in terms of how they design and manage their facilities, with machine learning increasingly playing a role in how it manages the consumption habits of its datacentres.

    The datacentre sector’s collective energy use is also regularly coming in for scrutiny from environmental lobbyists, campaign groups and regulators too. So, from a corporate responsibility perspective, power consumption is an area no operator can afford to ignore.

    In this e-guide, we take a look at some of the outside influences that could potentially impact on datacentre power and management costs in the years to come, while also taking a closer look at some of the latest thinking and best practices around datacentre energy efficiency and cooling today.
