New Data Center Standard
The desire by society to have unrestricted access to information via the internet is generating an exponential growth in the volume, storage and retrieval of internet traffic. This information is stored within Data Centers which house equipment essential to running of the internet. Data centers are huge consumers of energy both for operating and cooling the transmission and storage equipment. Consequently, Data Center operational strategy needs an environmental focus which concentrates on minimising energy consumption from both an environmental aspect (carbon footprint reduction) and from an economical (energy costs) perspective..
A new Data Center standard series (EN 50600-R) addressing energy efficiency enablement is being developed and will be available in the near future.
Hans-Jürgen Niethammer, TE Connectivity's marketing director EMEA/India/ANZ discusses the forthcoming standard and its implications. More...
