The Big Picture of Data Center Energy Efficiency

It has become commonplace for many facilities managers to assume that reducing the PUE, or power usage effectiveness, of a data center is a fool-proof way to add value to the business, as long as the steps taken to improve PUE don’t cause a spike in the risk of downtime.

While that is true in many cases, and improving the efficiency of the facility infrastructure can reduce the organization’s energy bill significantly,  PUE may not point to the best opportunities to add value to the overall business — or even to the best ways to cut data center energy use .

PUE has become a widely used metric for data center energy efficiency and while it can be useful, it doesn’t tell the whole story of data center energy efficiency. Find out more from Facilities Net.
