Moving towards a greener data center? For some this means reducing CO2 emissions, but for most it's reducing their utility bill. Let's face it, convincing the bean counters to fund initiatives that will lower operational costs is much easier than getting them excited about reducing the data center's carbon footprint.
With both energy costs and consumption on the rise, there is an ever increasing need to manage expenses related to powering IT equipment. To know just how much your IT equipment contributes to your data center utility bill, use Managed Power Distribution Units to meter and report total kWh energy consumption.
Used in place of an ordinary power strip, the MPC and VMR Series Managed PDUs are intelligent IP enabled power strips that meter and report kWh, kW, Amps, Volts and Temperature via local LED, SNMP, IP, Serial RS-232, Web Interface or through any MIB based software. When using the MPC Series administrators can know the kilowatt-hour consumption at each rack and branch circuit. They can also switch equipment ON, OFF or Power Cycle (Reboot) equipment if required.
Whether your focus is on reducing your carbon footprint or the utility bill, Interworld Electronics can help you know just how much energy your IT equipment is consuming.
