Reducing Data-Center Energy Consumption

RFID-enabled sensors, which can be deployed more quickly and at a much lower cost than wired sensors, can reduce energy consumption within data centers. Sensors can blanket a very large data center, providing detailed information regarding the temperature around each server rack. This enables data-center managers to cool a room more efficiently and at a lower cost. Overheating servers can also be detected more quickly, allowing managers to reroute data to an underutilized server. These systems can reduce cooling energy costs by 75 percent and deliver a return on investment in nine months. Learn about the solutions now available, and how they can reduce your company's energy costs.
