J.R. Simplot Data Center Refurbishment
August 17, 2010
As part of a data center refurbishment, the J.R. Simplot data center management team wanted to improve energy efficiency to meet corporate green initiatives. They also wanted to increase IT rack density, be better able to troubleshoot equipment and put in systems to manage potential risks. To improve energy efficiency and provide more power to IT racks they converted from 120 to 240 volt AC single-phase power. They also installed energy management software and intelligent rack PDUs with outlet-level power monitoring to add remote energy management, power monitoring of individual devices, environmental monitoring and sophisticated and accurate power usage reports and analytics.
