5 Reasons Data Center’s Availability, Capacity and Efficiency are being Compromised

January 22, 2019 10:34 pm | Published by Prime-DCS Editor

Data center owner-operators are increasingly looking for solutions to minimize total cost of ownership, cost per kW of IT load, and downtime. This paper explains the five main contributors to runaway data center costs, then introduces the ACE performance score and the continuous modeling process. Using both, this paper briefly explains how they are helping owner-operators save millions of dollars annually per data hall.

Could ‘minimize’ be the verb that best sums up a data center owner-operator’s ultimate objective? Think about it, whatever business you’re in, and whichever type of data center(s) you own, you almost certainly want to minimize one or more of the following: 

  • Cost overruns
  • TCO (total cost of ownership)
  • Cost per kilowatt ($/kW) of IT load
  • Downtime

In an industry where the average TCO overspend is around $27m per MW, where $/kW can spiral out of control within just a few short years of entering operation, and where the average cost of downtime is $627k per incident, owner-operators want solutions.

Poor planning and inefficient use of power, cooling and space represents a significant threat to your efforts to minimize costs. Yet it is precisely this that so often forces you into a corner – build a new facility to take the strain, or invest in a major overhaul. Neither ‘solution’ is attractive, so why are owner-operators so frequently in a position where their aspirations are never realized?

In this paper, we set out to not only answer that question, but to also offer a solution going forward.
