Getting a headache managing spiralling power requirements?
For Data Centre managers, managing spiralling power and cooling costs creates nothing but a headache. With increased adoption of virtualization technologies comes a corresponding increase in utilization, leading to greater power and cooling requirements.
Ever felt caught between a rock and a hard place? Data Centre managers with little insight into the changing IT footprint are often at the receiving end of change programmes. And as the IT landscape evolves, managing large inventories and keeping the lid on operational costs become astronomically complex. How to deal with the complexity?
Getting to grips with the problem
Data centre professionals are tasked with balancing strategic and tactical demands when striving to achieve agreed levels of service, performance and availability. It is simply not enough to keep networks, devices, applications and services running efficiently. They must also understand, contain and find ways to reduce costs associated with power, cooling and space capacities, facilities, security, and compliance.
Capacity Planning for Power Consumption
Reduce data centre spend and contain costs by accurately determining future capacity requirements. Through NetZoomDC’s extensive capacity planning capability, we can enable management to improve forecasting capacity for power, cooling, space and port availability. NetZoomDC's calculations are based on an extensive library of power consumption values, standard-build configuration data, comprehensive historic trends analytics and, with integration, even real-time power monitoring from intelligent PDUs.
