Data Centre Green IT Solutions

As concern for climate change and sustainability continues to grow, businesses are accepting responsibility for their stake in the environment.  By implementing a Green IT plan companies are reducing their carbon footprints and climate impact, while at the same time balancing their need for more profitability.  Data Centre optimization grapples with both sizes of this strategic equation.  Reducing your IT power consumption is good for the environment, while reducing your IT costs is good for your bottom line.

Data Centre Optimization Solutions

Server Consolidation

Consolidation brings existing servers into one location and combines applications and storage into a smaller number of more capable devices. You benefit from a number of cost savings that result from reduced physical space, reduced power consumption and a reduced number of applications and devices to support. Consolidation is your cost management solution toward containing your data centre sprawl. DOWNLOAD A SERVER CONSOLIDATION WHITEPAPER

Server Virtualization

Server virtualization is another strategy to reduce costs and improve your server environment. Virtualization blends economies of scale with the efficiencies gained from shared systems. Separating workloads from hardware dependencies allows rapid deployment and fast workload assigning which saves time and resources. Based on your needs, we will assess your current environment, map out the transition to a virtual environment and track virtual server accountabilities.

Environmental Monitoring: Power, Temperature and Humidity

Access to comprehensive and integrated real-time information about the environmental conditions affecting a data centre is crucial to the optimal sizing of power, cooling, and emissions parameters. Having on-line access to historical and trend information, as well as live, multi-level thermal imaging to pin-point areas of over-heating and over-cooling, enables IT managers to devise the best strategies for datacenter growth and administration.

CAPP Associates is pleased to introduce the EDX DC-3 Environmental Monitoring Solution, which has been specifically designed to monitor and report on power, temperature and humidity conditions within a data centre, in real-time.  LEARN MORE
