Triple Data center Capacity with New Technology

by CXOtoday Staff    Nov 07, 2008

Traditional data centers invest millions to maximize uptime to ensure power availability without very little focus towards energy saving. HP dynamic power capping will address this issue by reallocating power and cooling resources in the data center by dynamically setting or capping the power drawn by the servers.

This eliminates the need for over provisioning and identifying how much power is actually required to run each server. As a result, companies will be able reclaim their over provisioned energy to improve the capacity of their data center.

This will enable data center and companies to increase number of servers threefold, using the same power allocation and infrastructure. This can recover up to $16 million in capital expenditures for a 1-megawatt data center and reduce ongoing energy consumption by up to 25 percent.
