Saving energy and cost in datacenters
The cost of energy for power and cooling at many datacenters and server farms now exceeds the cost of the servers themselves. There are many new products and services designed to reduce datacenter energy use. But, it's challenging for managers to figure out what combination will reduce total cost of ownership, while providing sufficient capacity and reliability. Lumina has created a prototype tool to help them, the Analytica Data Center Capacity Planning Tool or ADCAPT.
