Datacenter monitoring: data security and energy efficiency

Data Centre_Agorà

Global demand for Data Centre (DC) capacity and Data Centre services continues to rise steadily, despite macroeconomic conditions. The DC role is expanding thanks the rapid increase in Virtualization, Cloud computing, High-Powered Computing, and the vast growth in Internet use, with the consequent increase of power consumption.

Power consumption of DCs becoming a serious concern in the design and operation, given by the need to save energy and use green energy to reduce environmental impact and energy costs. The effects of high power consumption manifest not only in the cost of electricity consumption, but also in the costs spent in designing effective cooling systems to ward off the generated heat.
