Sustainability Beyond PUE

January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST


With the cost of downtime increasing exponentially, reliability will continue to be king. However, it doesn’t need to be—nor should it be—at sustainability’s expense. PUE remains a good metric for measuring energy efficiency.

However, reducing carbon footprint should go hand-in-hand with any energy-reducing projects. How have some of the greenest, energy-efficient companies accomplished both, and can you implement similar strategies?

Three Takeaways:

  1. You cannot manage what you do not measure! Learn how to zero in on inefficient use of electricity.
  2. How to achieve thermal compliance at the rack level.
  3. Find out about trending technologies in the global data center industry:
      • Virtual Power
      • Liquid Core Cooling
      • Long term energy storage
      • Microgrids
