What Does It Mean to Choose Energy Efficient Data Center
It is not a secret that data center is highly dependent to electricity. For a facility that runs nonstop 24/7, the amount of electricity it needs to keep all the system operating is eminently high. In the end of the day, the burden of high electricity cost the data center company needs to pay will be transferred to their customers. As a result, you will need to spend a lot of money to rent a space in the colocation. As a matter of fact, it is the cost of electricity that makes data center cost keeps getting higher every year.
Thankfully, many data center companies have realized this problem as well. The high cost of electricity has hindered so many potential clients to use colocation service and now they are trying to provide a solution by providing energy efficient services.
But what does it mean by energy efficient? How can the colocation reduce the amount of power needed to keep the facility running without sacrificing the quality of the service? Is there really a way to do that?
Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to make a data center running more efficiently while keeping the facility operating nonstop like usual. One of the most common ways to do it is by regulating the layout of the aisles. The facility is divided into hot aisle and cold aisle which will improve the airflow in the room and reduce the energy needed to cool down the equipment. The data center also will make the cooling process of the equipment more efficient by regulating the speed of the fan drives. Furthermore, by using energy efficient certified equipment, the amount of electricity used also can be reduced significantly.
For you, as the client, choosing energy efficient data center will help you reducing your company’s expenses to pay the data center service, as well as conserving the environment and prevent more ecological destruction.NEX Datacenter
