The Power Struggle

Posted on November 15, 2010 by Website Administrator

In Australia the cost of electricity is rising by 10% year-on-year, an expense that can quickly translate to vast sums for large Australian enterprises. In 2009 Gartner found that energy costs would emerge as a company’s highest operating cost, second only to labour, in 70% of all data centre facilities worldwide.

With the cost of power rising dramatically and increased uncertainty about global power availability all levels of corporate management are more focused than ever on managing and conserving energy.

The saying “you can’t manage what you can’t measure” is particularly true for power, where rule-of-thumb estimates can turn out to be just plain wrong, leading to unnecessary and sometimes substantial costs. Nowhere is this more critical than in the data centre, as typically data centres use on average 25% of the total energy consumed in a typical large organisation.
