Challenges in Data Centers

  1. Older data centers are maxed out in power capacity.

  2. Poor thermal design leads to hot spots that limit rack loading.

  3. Establishing a power monitoring capability requires establishing a separate infrastructure of IP based intelligent power strips.

  4. Lack of visibility into actual power consumption requires significant overprovisioning to maintain reserve margins.
