Delegates will be able to improve energy efficiency in the data centre through the creation of a comprehensive energy strategy and implementation plan that will provide long-term carbon reductions and financial savings.
Computer systems, servers, networking and other IT equipment use a tremendous amount of power which can spiral out of control if not properly managed, monitored and maintained. Data centres also utilise redundant and back up power supplies as well as air conditioning, fire suppression, security, alarms and other supporting systems. This type of high-power, high-density equipment places an additional burden on the energy use of the power supplies and cooling systems.
Combined with ever rising wholesale energy prices and legislation that penalises those using excessive amounts of electricity, energy is an issue that is foremost in the minds of those operating in the sector.
Undertaking the CDCEP™ course provides delegates with contemporary expertise and allows them to strategically plan and implement systems and procedures to deal with energy use. They will be given tangible tools and methods to enable real energy savings and capacity reclamation.
Continually updated to reflect the key industry developments, the CDCEP™ Core Unit also takes into account the requirements of the latest version of the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres' Energy Efficiency.
