Data Center Energy Management System Can Cut Power Use by 50%

Data Center Energy Management System Can Cut Power Use by 50%

Data centers are growing bigger and bigger these days. As cloud computing rapidly expands , so do the data centers supporting it. Some companies are utilizing novel ways of cooling servers to keep energy demand down and some are just letting the outside air take care of it, but another approach -- cutting down on the servers needed in the first place -- could go a long way to slash data center energy demands. A new energy monitoring device and management system for data centers could help companies to do just that. Developed by the Embedded Systems Laboratory at EPFL in Switzerland, the new system called Power Monitor System and Management (PMSM), monitors and tracks the energy consumption by racks of servers and, even better, can redistribute workload among servers to optimize energy use. According to the developers, the system can cut power demand by 30 to 50 percent. As...
