Power usage effectiveness
(PUE) is the ratio that describes
Providing all of the essential elements of a modern high performance data centre, it can be configured with Tier 1 to Tier 4 resilience and a low power usage effectiveness
For energy saving purpose, the IDC incorporates airflow separation, and employs energy-efficient air-conditioning, power distribution equipment and lighting systems, which reduces the IDC's PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness
) value in operation.
PUE (power usage effectiveness
) is the ratio of IT power to total power.
The first block has six rooms with 520 sqm and a PUE (power usage effectiveness
) of 1.25.
By using advanced green technology for cooling such as end wall injection air conditioning, water-side economization and chimney racks to expel heat, the facility achieves a power usage effectiveness
(PUE) of under 1.2, putting it among the most energy efficient data centers in the UK.
- This is the power usage effectiveness
(PUE) rating which PT's Covilha's facility has been given.
According to recent research the Power Usage Effectiveness
(PUE) of data centres is often 1.8 to 2.5, with cooling equipment the largest contributor to power consumption.
The average annual Power Usage Effectiveness
(PUE) of the data center is estimated to be less than 1.6, making it one of the most 'Green' and 'Energy Efficient' data centers in the country.
Most that have been proposed, including power usage effectiveness
(PUE) and data center infrastructure efficiency (DCiE), attempt to map a direct relationship between total facility power delivered and IT equipment power available.
The Spartnership offers a solution which can deliver a 1.07 annualized PUE (power usage effectiveness
) in places like New Jersey.
