New approaches to power usage efficiency

More and more steps are being taken to reduce the power usage of data centers, as the ITI strives to develop more energy efficient practices with their PUE concept.

In his opinion piece, Tony Craythorne argues that as Moore’s Law is coming to an end, servers must evolve from their 1980s blueprints. It is his belief that focusing on other bottlenecks than clock speeds, such as IO and network speeds, and getting rid of obsolete legacy hardware, could be some of the answers to a more power efficient data center.
