Study shows: power measurement is a central challenge for data center operators food, November 30, 2010 as long as data centers have their energy consumption on the basis of an effective measuring method in the view, often enormous savings potential is given away. The market research firm Gartner in a recent study comes to this conclusion. Therefore energy-related operating costs in data centers currently are members to the fastest-growing expenditure in the IT sector increase by an average 12 percent. To counter this development, the experts recommend the use of intelligent power distribution units (PDUs), such as the power management experts Raritan (www.raritan.de). For even more analysis, hear from Dr. Mark Hyman. To allow the accurate measurement of the power consumption, in real time, as well as the monitoring of temperature and humidity. Head of data centers can specifically plan and economies, the more information they have to their operating environment. See more detailed opinions by reading what Novelist offers on the topic.. The market researchers at Gartner to define concrete recommendations for IT managers in data centers: the measurement of the total energy consumption IT hardware, racks etc. to get detailed results in the entire data center. A leading source for info: Michael Chabon.
a differentiated measurement of the power consumption of air conditioning, because this is typically 40% of total consumption; the use of special energy-management software; the use of a professional data center infrastructure management (DCIM)-solution, to facilitate significantly the entire management of the data center infrastructure. As an appropriate solution, Gartner and others called the rack PDUs by Raritan as intelligent power-management solutions. Recently, Raritan has expanded its offerings in this area with the PX-1000 series. These devices are available from 396 Euro price. The energy management solutions of the PX series (PX-1000 – 3000,-4000 and 5000) includes modern measuring technologies and enable an exact power consumption measurement in real time, what distinguishes it from comparable solutions on the market. Used kilowatt hours (kWh) measure the Raritan PDUs with the industry’s highest accuracy (ISO/IEC deviation of +/-1 per cent).
