In traditional data centers, for each Watt consumed in computing power, 3.3 Watts are consumed for cooling and accessory structures.
Apc, the Business Unit of Schneider Electric, which offers Critical Power & Cooling Services, provides, together with PromiGroup, services and solutions to design and manage the physical infrastructure of the data center in the name of energy optimization.
InfraStruxure Management Software combines in a single solution the building management systems with the physical infrastructure management of the data center, ensuring an overall governance of all aspects of the data center: from the quality of the power supply to the temperature of the coolers, up to the fuel level of the generators and to the Ups tolerance.
The solution provides thorough information on the costs of the current as well as historical energy performance of the plant. This system allows to identify the falls in efficiency and improve the PUE values (Power usage effectiveness) at the subsystem level.
That offered by Apc is a proactive management of the data center infrastructure through integrated software applications that share a centralized database and enable design, real-time monitoring, inventory management and planning through predictive simulation.
