How ETERNUS DX contributes to energy efficiency

As energy costs have been rising, companies’ electricity bills have become a major topic. IT departments are a big contributor to that bill, as well as to the company’s overall carbon footprint. They run power-hungry equipment, which is over provisioned in many cases in order to avoid system outages.

In the race to satisfy increasing demand for computing power, many organizations have equipped their data centers with power-hungry servers. The harder these machines work, the hotter they become, so equally power-hungry cooling systems are required in order to prevent them from crashing. This in turn brings about another challenge: adding further servers requires more floor space; the storage environment can also
be improved.
