data center efficiency

Data center efficiency is critical to business needs as computer requirements grow, density increases, and power and cooling demands climb. Intel is helping the industry address areas where data centers consume power including power conversion and distribution, cooling, and even lighting.

To do this, Intel is focusing on data center performance metrics and delivering instrumentation to improve energy efficiency at the processor, platform, and data center levels.

In collaboration with industry standards organizations such as the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC) and The Green Grid, Intel is helping to develop a more reliable metric that measures energy consumption and performance for all levels of utilization-idle to peak-that a server would experience in a typical day, week or month.
