Microsoft’s holistische blik…

Microsoft heeft een nieuw whitepaper uitgebracht genaamd A Holistic Approach to Energy Efficiency in Datacenters.

In het document onderschrijven ze de manier waar op DatacenterPulse naar het datacenter kijkt en die ik eerder heb beschreven in Groene applicaties ? Integratie !

But just improving PUE should not be an organization’s goal. The real goal is to eliminate waste and pack as much
compute capability in the available power budget. PUE can be a useful indicator of energy efficiency, but it can also
mislead you if used blindly. Take for example a scenario in which the fans in a server can be removed without impacting
its performance. The elimination of fan power reduces the IT power (fan power is part of IT power), improves energy
efficiency, but it also increases the PUE!

De Microsoft mensen (voornamelijk Global Foundation Services (GFS)) verdienen credits voor hun werk en openheid hier over.
