How to Achieve Lower PUE in Your Data Center

How to Achieve Lower PUE in Your Data Center

PUE or Power Usage Effectiveness indicates the ratio of a data center’s energy usage to the amount of energy consumed by the center’s IT equipment alone. The ideal Power Usage Effectiveness ratio is 1.0. This is due to the fact that a data center’s central objective is to provide IT resources for an organization or consumers. Ideally, all the energy used up by a data center goes towards the center’s IT equipment.

That would mean no
