Data center managers plan for power density jumps
Survey says data center power densities to double in the future.
A recent survey of Emerson Network Power and Liebert data center users found that respondents
plan to double the power densities in their racks in future facilities.
The Data Center Users Group
survey asked about 120 data center managers questions on data center
efficiency. Energy efficiency is now one of the top three concerns for nearly
half (47%) of survey respondents, a result that surveys over the past year or
so have confirmed. In a similar survey by the Data Center Users Group (DCUG)
four years ago, energy efficiency was hardly ever listed as a top concern.
