        Tackling Today’s Data Center Energy Efficiency Challenges – A Software-Oriented Approach

        Energy consumption is a growing concern for data centers. Advances in server equipment technologies and increased demand for computing power have increased load densities in the computer room, which in turn has caused corresponding increases in data center power consumption. Energy efficiency measures are thus of high importance for data center designers, operators and owners. This paper outlines a software-based approach to the data gathering, trending and analysis that are necessary to apply successful energy efficiency measures in data center environments.

        Guidance for Calculation of Efficiency (PUE) in Data Centers

        Before data center infrastructure efficiency can be benchmarked using PUE or other metrics, there must be agreement on exactly what power consumptions constitute IT loads, what consumptions constitute physical infrastructure, and what loads should not be counted. 

        This paper explains the problem and describes a standardized method for classifying data center loads for efficiency calculations.
