EMC Tackles Energy Efficiency in the Data Center
EMC Corporation has launched new assessment and planning services and tools to help businesses increase energy efficiency in the data center.
“As energy costs continue to rise and power grid capacity is pushed to the brink, energy provisioning and consumption are emerging as critical concerns for today’s CIOs, IT administrators and facility managers,” said Paul Goetz, EMC Vice President of Consulting and Management Services. “Energy costs represent the second largest line item associated with datacenter operations today, consuming more than 10% of a typical enterprise’s IT budget – a number that many experts predict will rise quickly in just a few years.”
As part of the EMC Energy Efficiency Services, EMC says it evaluates customer workloads and configurations to determine current/projected energy consumption across IT assets including servers and storage, data center capacity and utilization, and power and cooling costs associated with mechanical, structural and maintenance considerations. Once the assessment is complete, the EMC services team can recommend and design an optimized infrastructure that saves energy by incorporating consolidation, virtualization and/or storage tiering strategies.
