Green Grid Intros New Tools for Data Center Efficiency
The Green Grid (www.thegreengrid.org) announced Thursday that it has introduced new tools and new industry alliances announced third annual week of The Green Grid Technical Forum and Members of the meeting.
In January, the Green Grid opens registration for the technical forum, being held this week in San Jose.
The Green Grid shown to attendees of the Forum of how these new tools and partnerships are designed to meet the overall needs of data center operators and developr greater collaboration between stakeholders in industry and government.
With the theme “Get Connected-drive global change, with strategies for IT”, the forum also features a speech by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
“At this year’s Technical Forum, members of The Green Grid is demonstrating its commitment to improve data center energy efficiency through practice in the development of tools, standards and global alliances that make it easier for users end to promote best practices, “Belady says Christian, Microsoft representative and treasurer of The Green Grid. “Building on Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. ‘s inspiring efforts, we welcome new voices to join the hundreds of volunteers in our unique organization that is working to develop new programs to help data center managers and users Final energy efficiency before. ”
The Green Grid says it is developing dozens of both strategic and tactical projects to improve data center energy efficiency.
As a result of these efforts, the organization has introduced new online tools, free, extending the benefits of free tools widely used in refrigeration was introduced in February 2009.
The new Power Efficiency Estimator is designed to help data center operators to compare the various options for energy topologies and technologies within their facilities.
Available late first quarter of 2010, the tool takes into account many factors, including workload, availability and space limitations to create a report that is designed to improve decision making within a facility.
The calculator allows new PUE data center operators to input data specific to their facilities at regular intervals to determine their PUE. The tool is also available late in the first quarter of 2010.
The organization also has published a new white paper entitled “Impact of virtualization in the datacenter physical infrastructure.
The document, which is available in the “Library & Tools” Site of The Green Grid, provides data center professionals instructions on how to maximize the power and saving electricity, refrigeration equipment in a center environment data that are using virtualization.
Green Grid The Academy has launched its latest self-directed online course, the data center 101: limited capacity, to help data center managers and operators familiar with the terminology of the industry and solutions to the challenges of central database.
The organization has also made progress in its previously announced data center Design Guide, with the outline and draft chapters are now available for member comment.
The Green Grid and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers have co-authored a book entitled “Real-time measurements of energy consumption in data centers,” which focuses on measuring the energy consumption for the determination energy efficiency.
The book is free for the Green Grid member companies, or can be purchased or downloaded via the ASHRAE bookstore at $ 54.00.
