Mumbai, June 3 (UNI) Emerson Network Power today unveiled its breakthrough innovation 'Energy Logic', a step-by-step roadmap that provides data center and IT managers with a prioritised approach to reduce energy consumption up to 50 units.
The concept of launching of energy logic here is to make data centers space efficient, quantify savings and provide an estimated time to return on investment of each recommended action.
Speaking on the occasion, Bureau of Energy Efficiency Secretary Saurabh Kumar said, ''Increasing concern about climate change has encouraged people to adopt green approach in all walks of life.'' ''Going 'Green' is not only environment friendly but also cost efficient. For example, in data centers, reducing power consumption is the most effective way to cut cost and go green. And energy reduction can be achieved with proper planning and implementation of efficient technologies that exist today. We encourage companies like Emerson Network Power to share any and all expertise that helps the data center community reduce their energy usage,'' Mr Kumar said.
It will help IT and facility managers make decisions about optimising energy use and minimising critical resource constraints - power, cooling and space-without compromising availability or flexibility. Energy Logic centers on ''the cascade effect'' by which one Watt saved at the processor level can save an average total of 2.84 Watts in energy consumption.
Energy efficiency in the data centre continues to be a priority, driven by the need for more capacity. A 2007 Data Center Users' Group (DCUG(R)) survey, conducted by Emerson in the US, reported 79 per cent of IT professionals believe improving the energy efficiency of their company's data centre is important. However, only 17 per cent of respondents have a documented strategy for reducing energy use.
