Right Sizing Your Power System to Optimize Energy Usage
Credits: 1 AIA LU; 0.1 IACET CEU
Traditionally, the data center industry is risk adverse and has always erred on the side of caution when it comes to designing system requirements and levels of redundancy. This commonly resulted in oversized and redundant components in the power chain, which impacted energy efficiency.
More recently, the importance of energy efficiency has increased. Therefore, in today’s cost conscious and environmentally aware world, excessive oversizing is no longer considered best practice and of course, avoiding under-sizing a power system is still mandatory to ensure availability.
This webinar will discuss system capacity and other significant issues to consider when considering and selecting key elements in the data center power systems.
Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the common causes of oversizing
- Discuss how modular design and components can meet present and future power loads
- Understand the tradeoff of redundancy vs energy efficiency
- Describe the impact of cooling system types on power system sizing requirement
