How energy efficient is your data centre?
Even if you already have an existing data centre, there may be room for improvement. The energy efficiency of a data centre is defined by its PUE – power usage effectiveness. It is calculated by dividing the total energy used in a data centre by the energy used to power the computers inside it. The closer the answer is to ‘1’, the more efficient the data centre.
Sometimes efficiency is expressed as a DCIE percentage figure, meaning data centre infrastructure efficiency. The highest percentages apply to the most efficient data centres.
Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM)
For Foster Environmental, constructing or updating your data centre operation is just the start because our expert team understands the importance of continual monitoring and ongoing predictive maintenance.
We use DCIM technology to give you a virtual view of what’s happening inside your data centre, giving you greater visibility of what’s happening than if you were there in person. We use the system on your behalf too, watching and monitoring for even the slightest potential issue and correcting it before it becomes a problem.
