Course Description

The significance of energy efficiency in the data center is a comparatively recent realization that is only now emerging across the data center segment. The costs and environmental concerns are forcing the data center facilities to give more consideration to energy efficiency programs. This training will help the participants understand and implement an energy efficient data center in their respective facilities.

At the end of the training, participants should be able to: 

  • Put into practice the implementation of an energy efficient data center.
  • Appreciate the need for energy efficiency and benchmark best practices & frameworks.
  • Understand the principles for achieving power and cooling capacity management.
  • Establish, implement, maintain and improve an energy management system.

 Who Should Attend:

  • Energy and Facility Engineers / Managers 
  • Environment Officers and Managers
  • Energy Consultants
  • Property Developers and Managers (Preferably coming from Data Center Segment)

 Training Investment:

  • PHP 8,500 for ECCP Members
  • PHP 9,000 for Non ECCP Members


A. Introduction

B. Implementing an Energy Efficient Data Center

  • Electricity usage costs have become an increasing fraction of the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centers. It is possible to dramatically reduce the electrical consumption of typical data centers through appropriate design of the network-critical physical infrastructure and through the design of the IT architecture. This presentation explains how to quantify the electricity savings and provides examples of methods that can greatly reduce electrical power consumption.

C. Energy Efficient Cooling for Data Centers: A Close-Coupled Row Solution

  • The trend of increasing heat densities in data centers has held consistent with advances in computing technology for many years. As power density increased, it became evident that the degree of difficulty in cooling these higher power loads was also increasing. In recent years, traditional cooling system design has proven inadequate to remove concentrated heat loads (20 kW per rack and higher). This has driven an architectural shift in data center cooling. The advent of a newer cooling architecture designed for these higher densities has brought with it increased efficiencies for the data center. This presentation discusses the efficiency benefits of row-based cooling compared to two other common cooling 

D. Power and Cooling Capacity Management for Data Centers

  • High density IT equipment stresses the power density capability of modern data centers. Installation and unmanaged proliferation of this equipment can lead to unexpected problems with power and cooling infrastructure including overheating, overloads, and loss of redundancy. The ability to measure and predict power and cooling capability at the rack enclosure level is required to ensure predictable performance and optimize use of the physical infrastructure resource. This presentation describes the principles for achieving power and cooling capacity management. 

E. Maximizing the Effectiveness of Data Center Operations & Efficiency Data Center Management Software

  • How would you know where to place the next server? How much power and cooling should I plan next year? How many replacement batteries will I need to budget for? Which chillers are overloaded? These are typical IT monitoring issue questions that a CIO faces today. For many, getting a handle on power and cooling issues, day-to-day operations and long term planning often is both difficult and frustrating. At the root of this challenge is the need to switch back and forth between disparate software management systems from multiple companies. And planning is based on simulated models instead of real-time data. Find the answers to all your management questions in this session.
