Establishing a baseline measurement of your data center is an important first step in developing a meaningful ROI for any data center project. The cost of energy has recently exceeded the cost of IT equipment; understanding your energy footprint in terms of power consumption and cooling demand has become an important management tool. Measuring and tracking this information will identify immediate needs and opportunities for remediation as well as cost reduction. In addition, it will allow for progressive insights into the performance of your environment relative to industry benchmarks as well as form the foundation for ‘green’ initiatives.
