Great Tips for Analyzing Your Data Center's Power Usage Efficiency

on ‎04-05-2013 01:20 PM

Regular readers of this blog will know Bill Kosik, HP Data Center Energy Technologist, green IT guru, and irrepressible blogger (with some 40-plus posts to his name at Transforming IT alone!) Bill’s a passionate communicator in other venues, too, and if you’ve been following his recent coverage of data center efficiencies here, you might want to check out his in-depth treatment of the topic in the new online edition of Pure Power magazine. It’s the cover story, titled Estimating Data Center PUE, and it features some great photos of HP Flexible DC, our modular data center.


In the article, Bill explains analysis techniques that can be applied to:


  • Continuous cooling UPS losses
  • Separate, smaller UPS for other IT loads
  • Miscellaneous power and lighting usage schedules
  • Elevated supply air temperatures
  • Partial IT load

In case you missed them, here are some of Bill’s recent posts:
