Streamlining Data Center Power Efficiency in the Government Sector
February 23, 2016
Ensuring your data center is fully optimized so that it can remain cost- and energy-efficient, as well as highly secure, is important for any industry. For the government, however, meeting these objectives is absolutely mandatory as the sensitive data at stake is critical to national and local security, and the costs of mismanagement directly affect taxpayers.
Today, many options exist to help data center managers elevate the performance of their sites. For instance, employing advanced rack-level technology, which enables network administrators to measure and monitor power consumption, can help prevent power outages by alerting staff to such issues as overheated servers. What’s more, measuring and monitoring power enables network administrators in the government sector to stay within budget by eliminating wasteful energy consumption.
In addition, reporting on data center metrics is essential to maintaining a truly successful operation. With a PDU that includes advanced reporting features, network administrators will have metrics in hand to analyze expenses and security vulnerabilities, enabling them to create a more efficient data center environment.
