Measure of Data Centre Efficiency and Offers Efficiency Calculator

An industry-wide measure of data centre efficiency is a critical next step in addressing IT energy consumption, according to a new white paper issued today by Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical ContinuityTM.

This latest installment of Emerson Network Power’s Energy Logic white paper series advances the discussion started last year with the initial Energy Logic white paper, a prioritized roadmap for optimizing energy use without compromising availability or flexibility. The first Energy Logic analysis, however, did not address data centre efficiency directly, because without a universally accepted metric for data centre output, efficiency cannot be accurately quantified.

Today’s white paper, Energy Logic: Calculating and Prioritizing Your Data Center IT Efficiency Actions, takes the next step by using a placeholder metric to highlight the value of measuring data center efficiency in the same way that miles-per-gallon (MPG) provides an easily understood, agreed-upon efficiency measure for cars. Specifically, the new Energy Logic white paper introduces the concept of CUPS, or Compute Units per Second, to demonstrate how a metric can work.  CUPS is a relative measure of server output, based on average server performance in 2002. Using data from multiple industry sources, Emerson Network Power calculated the change in CUPS between 2002 and 2007, providing a common server performance measure required to calculate efficiency.
 
CUPS uncovers an important fact – while data centre energy consumption has risen in recent years, these increases have been accompanied by dramatic gains in data centre output and efficiency. If data centre output had remained flat between 2002 and 2007, the efficiency improvements achieved would have cut 2007 data centre consumption to one-eighth the 2002 consumption.

The analysis also helps data centre managers prioritize energy efficiency decisions. Using the CUPS metric, the report shows that 10 prioritized strategies proposed in the original  Energy Logic white paper increase data centre efficiency by 3.6 times. The measurement also pinpoints three strategies with the most impact – faster replacement of IT technologies, virtualization and high-density architecture.

“Our goal with this next step in Energy Logic is to illustrate how a metric can uncover important insights about performance while helping data centre managers prioritize efficiency efforts,” said Jack Pouchet, director of energy initiatives for Emerson Network Power. “Ultimately, a universal metric will help data centre professionals make significant improvements in energy efficiency while meeting growing performance demands.”

To promote industry discussion and debate toward development of an agreed-upon approach, today’s new installment of Energy Logic offers three criteria that an efficiency metric should meet: it should drive the right behavior; be available and published at the IT device level to help buyers make the right choice; and be scalable from the IT device to the data centre level.

“We continue to emphasize that today’s increasingly efficient technologies, along with effective management strategies, can help drive data centre efficiency,” said Michael Zatz, manager of the U.S. EPA’s ENERGY STAR Commercial Buildings Program. “Through continued discussion and information sharing, the data centre community can continue to deliver critical benefits to our economy and society while reducing energy usage.”

The aforementioned www.efficientdatacenters.com is a new Web site developed by Emerson Network Power to offer data centre professionals information on the latest advances in energy efficiency.

34% Increase in Chinese Server Market as Expansion Continues,

IDC claims a 34% Increase in Chinese Server Market and the  worldwide server market has increased by 4.8% year over year to $12.7 billion in the third quarter of 2014. This is the second consecutive quarter that the server market has experienced a year-over-year improvement in worldwide revenue. Server unit shipments improved 5.7% year over year in Q3 2014 to 2.38 million units as investments in hyperscale datacenter capacity expansion continue to reshape the core server market. Additionally, IDC thinks the signs of a server refresh cycle, which we expect will continue to lift the market into 2015.
