Session Outline

 Releasing space within the estate by revitalising existing IT facilities with more efficient, higher density solutions saves money and reduces carbon emissions. Data Centres by their very nature use large amounts of power, not only to run servers but to cool them. By consolidating services and introducing energy saving practises within the computer room environment, energy use can be halved making a significant reduction to the whole estate carbon footprint.
We will look at how engineered as a system solutions enable flexibility of design to allow a greater choice of locations and upgrade strategies for the protection of IT services.
