Power usage effectiveness
Power usage effectiveness definition
A data center’s energy efficiency. Organizations need massive data centers to support their operations and deliver services. However, the infrastructure required to carry out these transactions produces a massive amount of heat. Data centers use up enormous amounts of energy to cool server rooms — that directly translates into higher operating costs and environmental footprint
Increasing power usage effectiveness
- Maintaining higher temperatures whenever servers allow it.
- Choosing colder regions when establishing new data centers.
- Reducing density and improving the flow of cooling air.
- Using geothermal cooling.
