Ways to Save

Airflow management - Reduce energy use up to 20% by preventing cool supply air from mixing with the hot air released from IT equipment.

Upgrade equipment - Reduce your energy usage and generate less heat by upgrading computer room air conditioners and chillers with high-efficiency compressors or high-efficiency uninterruptible power supplies.

Control systems - Monitor your operations and set temperature points and fan speeds to optimize savings.

Closet-to-colocation site transfer - Benefit from economies of scale. Colocation sites rent space to businesses and organizations to house their servers and other company hardware, thus reducing energy use and enhanced reliability. Many of these facilities have state-of-the-art cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security maintaining an uptime and reliability of over 99.9%.

Data Center Energy Savings

Do I have a data center?

We live in a world where we need instant information gratification. As long as we need smart phones, laptops and tablets to meet our daily business needs you may have a “Data Center”. Data Centers, or IT closets, allow us to use these amazing tools. You may not have a full Data Center but there is a good chance your business has a telecom room, closet, or general area where all the servers are located. There are simple energy saving measures for these spaces that can help you save money!
