Conventional data centre energy management relies on metering at a server or rack level. It doesn’t matter whether it is on a server or cable, or that it is now digital and can communicate, the intrinsic technology is doing the same function as in in 1880’s, measuring the power and consumption of a device.
For effective and efficient control, organisations need to operate and view their cloud space in terms of business objects e.g. services and clients, and user-defined KPIs that indicate the operational cost and environmental impact of these commercial entities. The cloud is so complex that antiquated metering can never deliver this degree of visibility. Empowered with incisive, meaningful metrics, all levels of management can make informed decisions and contribute to the optimal performance of their company’s I.T. infrastructure.
Fortunately, Beeyon’s Papillon technology can provide these capabilities and more, and why we are confident in our Campaign to reduce Europe’s data centre industry carbon emissions by 1 Million Tonnes and save the industry €1 Billion.
