HP Data Center Smart Grid
The HP Data Center Smart Grid creates an intelligent data center that integrates and optimizes IT equipment and facilities from an energy information perspective. Smart Grid technology collects and communicates thousands of measurements across IT systems and facilities. Using extremely accurate power meters similar to those in energy-efficient homes, it evaluates and reports energy use and impact.
With interconnected sensors that detect when power is being wasted, Smart Grid allows IT managers to make adjustments in real time. Customers can accurately control energy use and environmental impact across the data center, getting all information needed to:
- Increase capacity and useful data center lifespan
- Reduce operating costs
- Control, postpone, or eliminate additional capital expenses
- Optimize the power and cooling efficiency of both IT equipment and facilities
- Provide insight and control over energy costs and environmental impact
For the first time, businesses can immediately see and control energy use across an entire data center, so they can minimize power consumption, reduce expenses, and cut their carbon footprint.
