Santa Clara, CA, September 15, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Tier44, the leading provider of data center management extensions to ServiceNow, today announced that Clemens Pfeiffer, President and CEO, will be a featured speaker at AFCOM Data Center World Fall, taking place September 20 - September 23 in National Harbor, MD at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
Titled, "ITM 16.1: Optimizing IT Reliability, Performance and Energy Efficiency in Virtualized Data Centers" this session will be held on Wednesday, September 23 from 8:00 - 9:00 am.
Titled, "ITM 1.1: A Case Study: Ways a Scheduling System Can Maximize Energy Efficiency (Case Study)" this session will be held on Wednesday, September 23 from 9:10 - 10:10 am.
Today, utilization in traditional data centers is still as low as 10-20%, which translates to approximately $30Bn in wasted power costs and 185 million tons of unnecessary carbon emissions every year according to leading industry analysts. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Energy has observed that the cost to power a server over its useful life now exceeds the original capital expenditure. Data centers waste a substantial amount of energy and money often because they are designed for peak capacity, performance and reliability.
Fortunately, there are several ways IT and facility managers can cooperate to improve overall data center efficiency "sometimes dramatically" without adversely impacting performance and reliability. These sessions will give CIOs an overview of these recent advances in data center energy efficiency that will save money, and increase reliability of the application. Specifically the case study should be of interest to anyone with large IT test and engineering environments as power savings can exceed 50%.
