Efficient data center designs
Sponsored by SearchDataCenter.com
As IT evolves and budgets tighten, it's not just IT staff roles and workflows that are changing -- data center designs themselves also need to be updated. An energy-efficient data center is one of the best ways to save on costs. There are a variety of ways to cut down on energy use without sacrificing hardware's reliability and performance, including choosing energy-efficient computing hardware, using virtualization and consolidation to run more workloads on less equipment, designing efficient data center cooling systems with an eye toward new techniques like free and liquid cooling and gaining better control over data center energy consumption with the PUE metric.
