Even without the SAS70 requirement, capacity and utilization should be a major focus within your DataCenter environment. if you want your energy costs to controlled, simply turn off some of your servers and desktops. The turnoff approach can result in nearly 10% decrease in power consumption for every 100 servers says Nermetes Research. In addition, this will allow the servers in operation to have better processing performance.
Power management may be automated. Software applications will monitor power consumed and turn off equipment when the need decreases. The software will also power power and capacity usage reports that may be used to further customize your operations.
SAS 70 audits will require you to manage your operations not only to protect your customers data, but to verify that your service level agreements are met. SAS70expert@gmail.com
