Keysource spent last week at Data Centre World providing advice and guidance on how data centre owners and operators can better operate their IT infrastructures. In addition, our Data Centre Design Consultant, Stephen Lorimer, gave an interesting presentation in the IT and Management Theatre on the topic of “Making monitoring and measurement the key to data centre optimisation.”
Stephen explained that many data centres are underperforming due to the incorrect provisioning of plant capacity for the levels of resilience required. He felt that that lack of data centre monitoring and measurement was preventing some facilities from achieving optimum efficiency because of excessive power and cooling capacity.
