Data centers are a critical part of today’s digital economy as they support the cloud services we all use in our day-to-day lives. One of the challenges global data centers face in this environment is the need to meet the increased processing and storage needs of their customers while also making their operations more energy efficient and sustainable. Power supplies are one area where efficiencies and power density can be optimized, resulting in lower data center electricity costs as well as a reduction in a facility’s environmental impact.
In this white paper, Advanced Energy explores how global data centers can achieve their sustainability goals by deploying power supplies that offer market-leading power densities and energy efficiencies. The paper outlines how every percentage point increase in efficiency reduces power needs and they illustrate what that can look like in terms of cost savings.
The paper also discusses the benefits of transitioning from 12 V power shelves to 48 V models.
