If you have gone through the exercise of architecting the power needs for your data center, or doing the math to determine how much power your backup generator needs to produce in the event of a data center power outage, then you know just how much juice it takes to keep the lights on in that room. The fact that you have to run air cooling units to dissipate the heat being generated from the network equipment tells you there is some power in there. Whether you are interested in shaving some dollars off of the bottom line to make sure there is more money in your compensation pool, or you are interested in saving and preserving our environment by not using electricity needlessly, there are steps you can take to reduce or minimize the amount of power being consumed in your data center. Gary Audin, President of consulting firm Delphi, Inc., was recently interviewed on SearchNetworking.com and provides some insight into the issues of power consumption and how to reduce the IT department’s electric bill.
