Efficient Data Centers | Energy Logic 2.0


Energy Logic 2.0

Energy Logic has received a makeover. Emerson Network Power introduced the original Energy Logic in 2007. Since then, data center and IT technologies have advanced and new best practices have emerged – prompting an update to leverage these improvements. The new Energy Logic 2.0 e-book illustrates how the energy consumption of a 5,000 square-foot data center could be cut by up to 74 percent using available technologies, compared to up to 50 percent in the original Energy Logic approach.

Energy Logic 2.0 arrives at the right time to help data center managers combat ever-rising energy consumption and optimize power, cooling and space. The base 5,000 square-foot data center modeled in 2007 has experienced a 37 percent increase in energy consumption as a result of increases in server power consumption. Energy Logic 2.0 shows how the energy consumption of this data center now can be reduced from 1,543kW to 408kW.
