Data Center Optimized Solutions
  31 July 2012

Energy consumption is one of the greatest challenges facing Data Centers as computing demands increase exponentially around the world. New generation server technologies from Supermicro are now available to maximize performance (by supporting up to 135W processors) while eliminating costly air-conditioning and cooling methods - how is this done?

The latest innovation is the design of high density computing with airflow optimized layout and integration. This allows standard rackmount servers to operate at temperatures of up to 47°C - an ambient temperature whereby datacenters can lower their power consumption costs immensely by lowering the air-conditioning needs. Traditional servers can only tolerate an ambient temperature of up to 38°C and data centers typically set an ambient temperature of up to 27°C.

The fact is that Data Centers are consuming a lot of power (and therefore spending a lot on monthly power bills) just to provide enough air-conditioning for their server rooms. The total power used is typically a lot more than the power used by the actual servers (IT equipment).

Power usage effectiveness (PUE) is a measure of how efficiently a computer data center uses its power; specifically, how much of the power is actually used by the computing equipment (in contrast to cooling and other overhead). Supermicro PUE-optimised servers make a "Total Facility Power / IT Equipment Power" ratio of less than 1.1 achievable. Please contact us if you can see any benefit from this latest technology and/or class of products.
