Without standardized sustainability metrics, it’s difficult to ensure internal alignment between design, procurement, operations, and sustainability teams. Schneider Electric proposes five categories of data center sustainability metrics that can be used to report on environmental sustainability.
Have you considered all of the available precision cooling options with your design engineer and your environmental control manufacturer? Matt Vicker, Product Development Manager at Data Aire explores how data centers can boost their ROI with one of three different types of precision cooling systems.
Tim Mirick, Chief Revenue Officer at Sabey Data Centers highlights how Washington’s hydropower and energy efficiency efforts create the perfect environment for data center sustainability.
High physical density and high power density go “hand in hand” when it comes to the data center. That’s according to a new report from Server Technology that contends to maximize both without having to pay for specialty infrastructure, many data centers have found it attractive to deploy 415V 3-phase AC power to the rack.
Aligned has matched the entire IT load of its data centers with renewable energy, as part of a holistic sustainability program spanning all parts of its operations.
Thanks to technology advancements and components such as gallium nitride (GaN) that enable ultra-high 98% efficiency and improved power densities, power loss can be reduced up to 50% compared to 96% efficient rectifiers. That’s according to a new report from Vertiv that walks readers through a breakthrough in energy efficiency that has the potential to reduce power losses over a wide load range, working to optimize CAPEX and OPEX.
It’s been said that “sustainability is most often defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.” Marc Cram, Director of Sales for Server Technology, discusses how data center sustainability is being addressed by the biggest names in the industry, as well as how the three R’s — reduce, reuse, recycle — are playing a role in the sustainability trend in the colocation industry.
A new focus on sustainability, efficiency and waste reduction opens up a wealth of opportunities to save money and use reusability to make key decisions around future data center designs, operations and processes.
