Gartner Report: How to Measure Energy Consumption in Your Data Center

January 14, 2011 No Comments

This research outlines a pragmatic approach that should be used to get an overall measurement of how much energy a dat center is consuming. Without a practical measurement methodology, users will waste money and operate the center at suboptimal levels.

Key Findings:

  • Measuring data center energy consumption at the building level can be a complex exercise (depending on the age, design and use of the building); it requires a careful breakdwon of the cooling component.
  • Continuous power utilization efficiency (PUE) readings will become the norm for most new large data centers.
  • Rack-level energy measurement is relatively staightforward, and all users should be doing that now.
