Energy Efficient Data Center Design: Driving Down Risk

Implementing energy efficiency into a data center is key to a company's profitability and a driver in risk mitigation. Without standardized readiness processes and integrated design up front, there’s no opportunity to mitigate risk--never mind introduce energy/operational efficiencies--into the design before CAD layout begins. Worse yet, resiliency and sustainability are often value-engineered out of the scope of critical facility designs. For example, most facility organizations don't think twice about fuel oil supply and maintenance, but bio-diesel mixed in a generator fuel tank can loosen caked on debris which can plug the fuel filter and shut down your data center. You could execute all aspects of your design and IT operations perfectly, but have it fail simply because you failed to incorporate maintainability and maintenance operations into the design intent. Attend this session to learn how integrating energy efficiency can mitigate your risks, improve your reliability and reduce your costs.
1. Implementing energy efficiency into a data center is key to a company’s profitability and a driver in risk mitigation. Review the role of standardized readiness processes and integrated design early in the data center design phase
2. Analyze why resiliency and sustainability are value-engineered out of the scope of critical facility designs, and how to reinstate them
3. Identify how to design data centers with maintainability and energy usage in mind
4. Evaluate strategies to lower the total cost of ownership and mitigate the risks associated with data center operations.
