IT infrastructure: 5 best practices for increasing efficiency, availability and capacity
The study on the Cost of Data Centre Downtime, sponsored by Emerson Network Power and conducted by the Ponemon Institute, revealed that:
• The mean cost for any type of data centre outage is € 389,879
• The average cost of a partial data centre shutdown is € 199,103
• A full shutdown costs more than € 524,464
Costs down, efficiency up
Emerson Network Power managed to reduce these costs with a new focus on efficiency. These 5 best practices represent proven approaches to employing cooling, power and management technologies in order to improve overall data centre performance.
