Critical Power Monitoring

by | Jan 22, 2018 | blog | 0 comments

44% of an average data center’s cost of ownership goes toward energy usage. On average, the cost of an unplanned data center outage per minute is $8,851.

With power being the largest operational cost for an IT facility, power densities dramatically increasing, and skyrocketing financial losses due to unplanned outages, CFOs and CIOs are scrutinizing the data center’s energy usage like never before. As a result, it’s a necessity to be aware of your facility’s power usage and be proactive in improving efficiencies.  Critical power monitoring, metering and trending from multiple points will provide that important insight.
