Report: “Highly Energy-Efficient Data Centers in Practice”
451 Research, which focuses on enterprise IT innovation, has published a report that examines how data centers are using developments in design, energy management, cooling and new deployment approaches to improve energy efficiency. The report includes case studies from 24 of the world’s highly-efficient data centers. Highlights of the report, entitled “Highly Energy-Efficient Data Centers in Practice,” include:
*The fact that Internet and cloud computing services will continue to place increased demand and public focus on the data center operations of suppliers.
*Power and cooling will remain top targets for efficiency; operators are being more cautious with DC power distribution.
*While prefab modular data centers are not necessarily energy efficient, their phased deployment can assist operators in avoiding infrastructure overcapacity.
The report also finds efficient data centers are increasing their emphasis on collaboration between facilities and IT operations within an organization and between organizations and their consultants and vendors.
451 Research and its sister division, Uptime Institute, will host a Webinar on highly efficient data centers on October 30, which will include a discussion of the report’s findings and a case study from Urbacon, a 2012 Uptime Institute Green Enterprise IT award winner for facility design innovation.
