Efficiency, space utilisation, energy management and reduced carbon footprints.
Professional Services . Datacentre Utilisation & Optimisation
Ever increasing property and energy costs, plus the demands of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), have propelled data centre efficiency to the top of the IT agenda.
Excel offers the expertise and the advanced technology required to address these challenges head-on, providing a range of services designed to audit and benchmark existing systems and produce recommendations for:
- improving operating efficiency
- optimising space utilisation
- reducing energy costs
- reducing carbon footprint (and therefore associated CRC charges)
Our analyses are built on a strong understanding of best practice in air flows, hot and cold aisle configuration, equipment rack and containment design, and server utilisation.
By bringing this to bear we can identify where: fewer machines might be needed (reducing hardware, software and maintenance costs at a stroke); physical layout can be re-configured for improved performance and / or energy efficiency; server set up can be re-configured for enhanced manageability and security; or servers could support multiple operations, reducing idle time and improving infrastructure operating performance.
