In this Energy Exchange pre-conference workshop, Steve Greenberg and Dale Sartor, authors of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s “Small Data Center Energy Savings Guide,” will provide actionable guidance to save energy in small data centers. Small data centers (under 5,000 square feet of computer floor) are especially important because, while they house more than half of all servers (Shehabi et. al. 2016), they tend to have only fair energy management.
During this workshop, participants will learn about low-cost energy efficiency opportunities, acquire knowledge about free tools and resources to help achieve energy savings, learn about training opportunities, and more.
This workshop is particularly relevant to federal data centers implementing the Office of Management and Budget’s Data Center Optimization Initiative.
Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will gain an understanding of:
- Small data center energy saving best practices.
- Available tools and resources for helping to save energy in a small data center.
- The federal mandates regarding small and all data centers.
