Calculate the PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of your data centre.
PUE (power usage effectiveness) is a widely used metric that provides a guide to the energy efficiency of your data centre by measuring the power used by IT resources relative to the total facility load. New data centres with the latest high efficiency power and cooling plant can achieve a PUE as low as 1.2 while the UK average is approximately 1.8. However, older data centres should be able to attain a PUE of 1.4 by adopting best practise measures.
AIT provides innovative advice and solutions to make it easier to adopt best practise, reduce PUE and cut Data Centre energy costs.
