Studies show that data centers are doubling their total power consumption every 5 years. But have most data centers optimized their energy consumption with the current available solutions? Platform Computing knows there is room in data centers to reduce energy costs by 10-30%. This paper describes strategies for dynamically managing the energy consumption to achieve similar results.

The general public is becoming increasingly cynical about the environment claims of businesses and with much bad press around data centers, information technology (IT) is in the front line. But data centers are actually the easiest bit of IT to control and consolidating infrastructure into them can help reduce the overall energy usage of IT and, if used well, IT itself can help businesses reduce their overall carbon footprint.
This white paper explores the challenges of increasing computing power in resource-constrained physical spaces and data centers experiencing high growth. We also explore how intelligent rack PDUs can meet these challenges and address critical uptime and capacity planning issues.
This Case Study explores how they installed energy management software and intelligent rack PDUs with outlet-level power monitoring to add remote energy management, power monitoring of individual devices, environmental monitoring, and sophisticated and accurate power usage reports and analytics.
