Providing managers the reporting tools to improve energy efficiency and lower operating costs in data centres with Velocity
Data centres pack high processing power in considerably smaller space. High density computing environments can be a huge drain on operating budgets with rising energy demand and power costs. By their very nature, data centres consume a lot of energy and infrastructure power requirements can in turn drive up operating costs. Like anything else that requires electricity, data centres rely on power for just about everything. No power, no data centre. In today’s age where utility bills are continuing to increase, data centre managers are looking for lucrative ways to reduce power consumption and ultimately their utility bills by addressing this with technology that can provide energy efficiency.
