1. Limit your energy consumption
IT equipment uses a lot of energy. Now that a data explosion can no longer be denied, energy consumption is increasing accordingly. As a result, limit standby power and switch off unnecessary equipment as soon as demand permits.
2. Be data-aware
In order to exploit the full potential of data, it is crucial to process the volume in a timely manner and to maintain a good overview. Server space is not infinite. Create awareness around data storage, as sustainability gains can also be made here. Is certain information stored twice? What could go to the cloud?
3. Try to achieve a good balance
Don’t leave any server space unused as a result of overprovisioning. All the capacity you have consumes energy, including the capacity that is not being used. Therefore, be sure to use all existing equipment efficiently without making unnecessary investments. At the same time, outdated equipment consumes more than modern, more energy-efficient equipment. It therefore pays to weigh up all the various aspects.
Address the biggest challenges in a multi-cloud environment
A modern data centre is all about performance, manageability and security, as well as sustainability. Dell and AMD are joining forces to offer solutions for the biggest challenges in a multi-cloud environment. By combining the Dell PowerEdge portfolio of servers with the latest 4th Generation AMD EPYC™ Processors, Dell and AMD are breaking all records.
An extremely user-friendly and efficient management system is indispensable for workload management. OpenManage allows you to easily manage the most challenging workloads. You determine the most suitable location for each workload. Peak loads can be easily absorbed by scaling up the capacity based on the requirements, which allows you to avoid overprovisioning.
