Active Power Management: Your On-Ramp to Utility Computing
Join BearingPoint technologist and managing director Frederic Veron as he and Kenneth Oestreich, director of product management and product marketing at Cassatt explore the active power management approach to utility computing and why the market is now ripe for the ability to actively control power status for machines.
We’ll learn through real-world examples, that beyond corporate social responsibility, utility computing is a good exercise for corporations, with proven ROI. Active Power Management is a small bite to take out of utility computing as it is one of the three main layers for optimizing power consumption in a corporate environment.
Layer 1 – the notion of active power management – optimizing at the server/machine level
Layer 2 – monitoring and optimization of energy – power used for non-IT like lighting can lead to more efficient ways of sourcing
Layer 3 – renegotiating utility contracts – once you’ve optimized power in your data center, depending on regulations by state, you can renegotiate as there’s a good chance you’ll realize cost savings
