DatacenterDynamics Amsterdam, 29th September 2008: Slash data center power consumption, delegates told.
Best practices in data center operation such as matching power to load and optimising temperature were key themes at the recent DatacenterDynamics Amsterdam Conference.
Data centers are increasingly judged on energy consumption. Coping with the cooling issues in high density locations and best practices for energy efficiency currently top the list of concerns for many operators. The best use of equipment power management features, running fans at optimum rates to match data center loads and ensuring redundancy levels are set to meet availability requirements produce huge data center energy savings, delegates to the conference heard in serious of detailed technical presentations.
“With the current focus on energy cost containment in data center operations the immediate benefits of attendence to Datacenterdynamics Amsterdam is undeniable. The audience heard how to implement best practice to slash power use and related costs in the data center without any loss of performance. Presentations included two fascinating case studies on large financial institutions who cut energy bills by optimising equipment use through focusing on economiser and computer room air conditioner set ups. Getting to the heart of the technical issues of data center operation is what our conferences deliver. DatacenterDynamics attracts the experts who educate delegates on the key issues that affect data center operations today and in the future,” said Dan Scarbrough, CEO of Datacenterdynamics.
The Amsterdam audience heard from data center industry experts including Don Beaty, chairman of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHREA) and CEO of DLB Associates, Stephen Nagel, director of Marquee Accounts at Knurr and Terremark Europe CEO Joost Mettens.
