REPORT: Delivering Energy Efficiency for Australian Data Centres
This in-depth Advisory Report from Current Analysis is based on research with Australian CIOs. It explains how emerging technology platforms and increased focus on security are changing the way data centres are being designed, built and maintained. Outlining the changing trends in data centre infrastructure, scaling and networking, it reveals:
- Why energy efficiency is firmly back on the agenda since the Global Financial Crisis – ranking above even ‘security’ and ‘uptime’ as the biggest single challenge and reason for selecting a data centre operator
- How changes in data centre infrastructure impact the underlying energy costs
- How standards for measuring the energy efficiency data centre facilities will become more important in the future and why, Australia, NABERS will likely overtake PUE
It also includes expert recommendations and considerations for technology decision-makers.
