Power Management

Reducing data center power consumption has emerged as the primary focus of many organizations. Managing power usage is the first step in improving the efficiency of any data center.

Power Trace

Understanding the power chain helps data center operators visualize the power resource distribution across the data center. The Power Trace diagrams provide a comprehensive view of power utilization and allow customers to diagnose power provisioning issues and their location.

Optimize Power at the Server Level

Another way of optimizing power is by identifying the underutilized servers and scheduling them for virtualization, redeployment or disposal. Eliminating underused servers increases rack space density, reduces stranded power, postpones and even avoids unnecessary infrastructure expansions.
NetZoomDC displays which servers are not used to recommended capacity or are idle, and tells you precisely how much power can be saved by disposing of the underutilized servers. This enables data center operators to decide which servers should be redeployed or virtualized in order to increase overall available power.

Optimize Power at the PDU Level

When planning power optimization, the wisest approach is to start where optimization will have the most impact. NetZoomDC helps customers to reduce the overprovisioning to racks at the smart PDU level by capturing the power readings directly from the PDUs. NetZoomDC leverages the integration with technology partners such as Intel®, Server Technology® and RF Code™ to provide a comprehensive power management and monitoring solution.
In the case of simple PDUs, which are still actively used use in data centers, NetZoomDC captures power by aggregating the power values of each node. Optimizing power at the PDU level is the most cost effective method to improve capacity utilization in the data center.

Optimize Provisioned Power Based on Real-Time Power Data

Traditionally, data center operators had to rely on nameplate values to estimate the power requirements. The shortcoming of this method, however, is that it nearly always results in underutilization of budgeted power.
NetZoomDC displays Real Time, Provisioned, Nameplate, De-rated and Lab power metrics. Having several KPIs reporting power consumption provides an instant frame of reference that helps data center operators to streamline their power management decisions.
NetZoomDC uses Intel® DCM, Server Technology and RF Code for real-time power, thermal and capacity monitoring.

Data Center Cooling

The heat generated by the devices is extracted by Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment and cooled down in order to maintain appropriate operating temperature in the data center. In general, HVAC equipment maintains appropriate ambient conditions in the data center by extracting the heat dissipated by the IT equipment. NetZoomDC identifies racks with highest inlet temperature as well as thermal zones within the data center indicating hot spots and anticipating possible issues which can affect the data center performance.

Power Consumption Forecasting

NetZoomDC uses forecasts and What If analysis to determine projected values of future power consumption across the data center; that way users can determine the resources required for future build-outs and unlock the full business value of NetZoomDC DCIM.

Alerting on Power and Thermal Status in Real-Time

NetZoomDC delivers critical alerts to notify users of changes in power consumption or temperature status in real time. The alerts are based off the threshold limits and power policies set by the user. The alerts are delivered to the web client and mobile application as well as via SMS Messaging and e-mail.

Control Power with Policy-Based Power Capping

Power capping enables NetZoomDC users to limit the power supplied to servers by applying a temporary or recurrent power limit (cap).
Often, servers can use more power than is allocated by the data center operator. This can cause outages and server downtime. When power capping is used, the servers cannot exceed the power capacity limit defined by the operator, thereby preventing potential outages and assuring operational continuity during unplanned downtime. Additional benefits of power capping are: increased rack density, power balancing, power budgeting.
NetZoomDC users can lower the power consumption of a single rack/server or a group of racks/servers, thus applying a power cap policy to multiple instances at once. A group cap policy is convenient when an area suffers a temporary operational impairment and requires management of multiple racks or servers simultaneously.
