Company to reduce data centre cooling costs and power requirements

Wednesday, 07 May, 2008

ADC Krone has joined the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) to help engineer a greener property industry. As a member of the GBCA, the company will be promoting environmentally responsible technologies, design practices and operations and helping users attain the GBCA’s six-star environmental rating.

Data centre infrastructure requires specialised design, greater reliability and manageability, and higher density than in other applications. The company offers innovative products and solutions that support modern data centre implementation while also helping resolve environmental and power issues that affect the enterprise.

“Effective design and installation of passive network infrastructure can help reduce the cooling requirements and energy consumption of a data centre,” said Mike Hanahoe, director of Global Connectivity Solutions Asia Pacific for ADC Krone.

Improving cable management, stopping air leakages, removing cable dams under the data centre floor and choosing smaller diameter cable to improve airflow are just some of the energy-saving measures available to enterprises. Selecting the right network components can also prove critical in reducing power consumption and costs.

The company supports green data centres and environmental efficiency by designing and manufacturing space-saving solutions that can improve airflow and reduce costs associated with power and cooling.

A white paper outlining the measures to reduce power consumption within data centres is available at:
