Data Center Power Management
In any modern data center, the largest ongoing expense is typically the electric bill. Hardware, software, environmental control design
, server layout, and storage configuration
all impact how your data center utilizes electricity.
As a result, organizations looking to cut costs and improve energy efficiency
are turning to organizations like MCPc to help optimize and cut power consumption.
Our technology experts can show you how power is currently being used, identify opportunities for improvement, and advise you on solutions to most effectively power your data center
without compromising performance.
Monitoring Power Use
Gaining an understanding of how and where electricity is being used within your data center is the first step to any power management optimization solution.
Through observation, conversations with your IT department, and the latest technology tools we assess your data center environment’s power usage. For example, we can track power usage down to a specific outlet using monitoring points in specific PDUs.
Our Power Management Solutions
Using this information, our engineers then work with you to strategize a power management solution that addresses your energy-use objectives.
In some cases, reconfiguring air conditioning systems
to more efficiently cool servers can reduce power usage considerably. In other situations, upgrading legacy systems
to more energy-efficient technologies delivers significant cost savings.
Other data center power management solutions include server consolidation, virtualization
or integration of smart technologies which can redistribute or power down elements during periods of low activity.
Trust MCPc to recommend the right solution to reach your organization’s power usage goals.
