Data centers electricity consumption-Amazing facts

Data centers electricity consumption-Amazing facts from AMD

AMD has released some amazing data center facts- servers,data center infrastructure and cooling infrastructure consumed around 1.2% of the electricity consumption of the entire US market

Alternatives to lowering electricity consumption in data centers

Data centers need to seriously look at data center options such as server consolidation and virtualization, in the aim to use data center server CPU as a service

  • Data center server consolidation:In a survey of data centers across the US, I can state with confidence that 80% of servers are operating at below 20% capacity. Data center server consolidation will not only save money for data centers in server cost but also help in reducing precious energy resources such as electricity consumption

  • Data storage server virtualization:Data storage server virtualization assists data centers in optimally switching between blade servers to create a true CPU and data storage as a service data center. This server virtualization will also mean that optimal electricity consumption is taking place in the data center

Hello Gary,

Sorry, didn't find an email address on your blog, thus this unrelated comment.

I am a storage blogger and attending the SNW in San Diego. I am contacting fellow storage bloggers to inquire about their plans for SNW. If you are attending SNW, will you be interested in attending a gathering of fellow storage bloggers? Any thoughts on any such gathering are most welcome.

I recently wrote a blog post on this topic
http://andirog.blogspot.com/2007/04/say-hello-at-snw.html. I will appreciate any help in spreading the word to fellow bloggers and storage professionals.

Well one thing’s for sure. I work in for a company out here in their IT department and we are really lacking decent database administration. We’ve all been asked to come up with ideas and present them at the next weekly team meeting. I feel we really need to look into more database automation. Since we began working with IT automation things have steadily improved within our network and everyone on the team is much happier coming to work.

We are far from maximizing potential though. The company’s business software applications still aren’t completely up to snuff but if we get into more automation, perhaps run book automation we’ll have even more time to dedicate to those applications and get them running at optimal performance.
