Learn how to Drive Down your Data Center Energy Usage



Join us to learn more about how to lower the costs of operation at our


Data Center Energy Efficiency Seminar


Power and cooling requirements have risen at an ever-increasing rate.

The recent trend toward virtualization has pushed the requirements to new levels never even imagined just 5 years ago. The average power has risen from 1-2 KW to 5-10KW per rack and some cases as high as 20-30KW per rack.

The current environment makes energy efficiency a necessity.

While virtualization has decreased the number of servers and the space requirements, it has raised power and cooling density to the point that data centers that were built only a few years ago are unable to effectively or efficiently support the new high-density 1U and Blade Servers.

This workshop will address these challenges, as well as how to measure and improve Data Center efficiency.

Greening Initiatives, Power Consumption & Provisioning, as well as Capacity Planning are among the top major concerns for Data Center managers today.  Various studies show that in the past few years, as the pressure to expand computing resources increases, concerns relating to power and cooling become more and more important. 

This seminar will address the various factors that have impacted Data Center Efficiency, ways to meet these challenges, as well as how to measure and improve the overall power and cooling efficiency. Here are some of the topics that will be covered:

Understanding the New Efficiency Metrics

   ·     PUE - Power Usage Effectiveness

   ·     DCiE - Data Center Efficiency

Factors that Affect your Data Center's Energy Efficiency
· Voltage vs Efficiency: Server Power Supplies, UPS and Power Distribution
· Effects of Power Redundancy on Efficiency: N, N+1, 2N
· Airflow Issues for Improving Data Center Efficiency
· Cooling Technologies: DX, Fluid Loop, Chilled Water & “Free Cooling”
· High Density Blade Server power & Cooling Requirements
· Watts per Square Foot vs Watts per Rack
· Close Coupled vs Perimeter Cooling Efficiency
· Best Practices vs Reality

 Raritan will be demonstrating the new  Dominion® PX – a secure, reliable, remote power-management solution that helps you improve power capacity planning, uptime, energy efficiency and productivity in the data center

·         Accurate, real time PDU-level and outlet-level monitoring of power

·         Rack temperature and humidity monitoring with environmental sensors

·         And much more…

 You will also see a demonstration about the just released version 1.3 of


Power IQ

Now, through a single Web interface, Power IQ can simplify the management of a multi-vendor infrastructure, providing data collection for multiple rack PDUs to help managers improve data center availability, enhance capacity planning and improve energy efficiency.
