About this talk

Making savings in the data centre: best practices in reducing energy consumption and costs in the data centre 45 min We’re all used to seeing presentations and articles on Green data centres. And whilst data centres can be more ef?cient or less ef?cient energy or “energy smart”, the equipment that they house will always consume energy and cause carbon dioxide emissions. In fact, data storage devices have the highest power consumption growth rate (191% p.a.) and the highest overall power consumption. However, with proper physical planning, the effectiveness of cooling can be increased and both energy use and costs can be reduced. Josh Krischer, a recognised expert in data centre design and management and former VP of Research at Gartner will lead you through the options to reduce storage capacity requirements and provide necessary cooling. Key points include: Learning from mistakes; pinpointing common errors in data centre layout design Assessing best practice in data centre power and cooling techniques Evaluating emerging storage technologies that may help to reduce storage capacities and energy costs Josh Krischer is an expert and executive advisor on high-end computing, storage, disaster recovery techniques, and data center consolidation, with over 39 years of experience. Currently doing business through his own independent analyst firm, he was a Research Vice-President at Gartner Inc. between 1998 and 2007. Many large vendors regard him as the most influential mainframe and storage analyst in Europe and one of the most influential world-wide. In his career, he has been a featured speaker at many IT events world-wide, including Gartner summits and symposia, industry and educational conferences, and major vendor events.
