Calculate your data center PUE and DCiE
You can’t control what you can’t measure
AKCP monitoring solutions allow you to gain detailed insights into your data center facility’s environmental and power parameters. Checking for hotspots, differential air pressure, and airflow around your data center. Ensure that real-life measurements match predicted cooling and airflow analysis from CFD models. Once you have the proper sensors and monitoring in place, the measurements can be used to begin controlling your data center for maximum efficiency. The first thing to do is determine what is your current PUE and use this as a benchmark.
Using the above calculator, the huge cost savings can be seen through improved PUE. The holy grail of the Data Center is a PUE of 1.0, which would be totally free cooling. Deploying strategies such as hot or cold aisle containment were possibly using free cooling from outside air, adjusting air conditioning set points, and improving airflow management will all aid in reducing your PUE numbers, saving you money, and lowering your carbon footprint.
