The Green Data Center feature produces a presentation quality dashboard useful in quickly communicating the “Green” status of a data center
Green Data Center
Using The Green Grid’s metrics of Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE), view top resource consumers by type: servers, network, storage equipment, or other. Additionally, the data center carbon footprint is calculated and displayed.
- Calculate and display PUE and DCiE in a dashboard format
- Calculate and display data center carbon footprint
- Continually calculate PUE and DCiE and display them in a histogram over time
Equally important to knowing what your PUE and DCiE are at any moment is how those values are trending over time. RACKWISE DCiM Xtm calculates and displays those trends.
The Green Data Center when used with RACKWISE DCiM Xtm’s extensive modeling and real-time monitoring capabilities, automatically calculates the positive effects of a proposed change to a data center. Organizations that take measures to go “Green” not only save the environment, they will also save energy, which results in significant cost savings that can be documented and quantified by RACKWISE DCiM Xtm.
