Electrical Efficiency

Electricity is one of the major components of cost in operating a server room. Anything that can be done to increase server room efficiency will help to reduce the cost. There a variety of ways to achieve this, ranging from simple to complex, with corresponding returns on investment.

On the simple end, items such as increasing cooling set points, installing blanking panels, and adding airflow solutions can be effective. For higher ROI, a planned approach to upgrading equipment to more advanced technology is a must in any server room. In addition, power management technology, variable frequency drives, and rack/row level cooling to more closely match the needs in a specific area can all yield significant efficiencies.
