Reduce Your Data Center’s Energy Use Through Server Power Management

500766547

Server power management remains an untapped opportunity for reducing data center use because most data centers rarely run at full capacity. This is a problem because, consequently, a facility operating at just 20 percent capacity may use 80 percent of the energy as the same facility operating at 100 percent capacity.

Server power management can significantly reduce the energy consumption of idle servers, but is not utilized in the typical data center because of concerns about response times for “waking” an idle server using power management.

Will 60 Percent of Computing be Done in the Cloud in 2025?

CloudComputing - 4

A panel of industry experts recently discussed the findings from Emerson Network Power’s Data Center 2025 study. In addition to talking through topics such as rack densities and alternative energy sources, the panel also debated how much computing will be done in the cloud rather than by in-house data centers by the year 2025. According to the report, 67 percent of experts surveyed believe at least 60 percent of computing will happen in the cloud in the year 2025, though the panelists had differing opinions on the subject.

Happy Partnership: an early Holiday Present. If you’ll notice, each phrase begins with HP

DCenter

Think of this as a kind of holiday gift. One that, if you are a data center administrator, you will be able to enjoy for years to come.

Admins like you are increasingly in the IT crosshairs: you have been charged with bringing the entire data center environment under one umbrella, and automating how it operates.  24/7 functionality is a given, of course; multiple sites must function as one, and you are expected to have every facet of the centers under control at any given point.

“Luleå 2” will be the pilot for Facebook’s new Rapid Deployment Data Center (RDDC), that incorporates a number of modular design elements, including pre-fabricated materials and on-site assembly, to enable an increase in the speed of deployment and reduction in material use.

It will be built next to Facebook’s first data center building in Luleå, which came online in June 2013. Like its predecessor, Luleå 2 will be one of the most efficient and sustainable data centers in the world, powered by 100 percent renewable energy and featuring the latest in Open Compute Project server, storage, mechanical and electrical designs.
