Executive Summary

Rising energy costs and diminishing supplies were primary motivations for this survey. So over a five-month period, Raritan and PTS defined and implemented a plan to instrument Raritan's server room and measure the power usage at an IT-device level and at a branch-circuit level for non-IT load. The goal of this project: prove that there are tools in the marketplace today that can provide data center managers with a key resource to help restrain the increase in power consumption and to start taking steps toward becoming a greener company.
