Effective resource utilization is
critical for data centers, starting with being good stewards
of the environment and limiting energy, water and land usage to managing the
complexities of labor shortages by reducing the number of personnel required to
construct and operate data centers. This is especially important with the ever-increasing demand for data
processing and connectivity. Data center operators must carefully assess
and analyze their current electrical and IT resources to ensure that they are
adequate in meeting current and future demand and avoid performance
degradation that can lead to potential downtime.
Resource utilization and management
can be addressed via digital capabilities, efficiencies, sustainability and
circular resource utilization. For example, actionable intelligence from smart
devices can help to prioritize resources. Energy monitoring and management
systems provide intelligence to lower
energy usage. Offsite manufacturing of prefabricated solutions reduce the
number of trades needed on site for installation and commissioning. And
advanced digital technology, such
as digital switchgear, can save operators up to 25% on space compared to conventional systems.
ABB provides a robust electrical
and digital portfolio that will allow data centers to guarantee optimal
performance while effectively managing energy use and other related
resources. Digital solutions, such as the ABB Energy and Asset Manager, offers
real time PUE and trend monitoring as a dashboard widget to provide
real-time visibility on the facility’s electrical performance. These digital
solutions come with service agreements, including AR-based virtual
assistance capabilities, to provide professional troubleshooting and
immediately address equipment issues.
