A data center’s energy efficiency is measured by its overall Power Utilization Effectiveness (PUE). If 100% of the electricity to a facility went toward powering the IT infrastructure, the result would be a perfect PUE of 1.0. However, that ratio climbs as other electrical consumption is factored in, such as lighting and cooling.
Hot-aisle containment is one of the most energy efficient models that a data center deployment can utilize to cool its equipment. We pair this model with intelligent cooling systems, such as indirect evaporative cooling and environmental economizers, to further reduce overall energy consumption.
Energy saving cooling methods employ intelligent systems to increase their energy efficiency. Hot-aisle containment, indirect evaporative cooling, and environmental economizers reduce overall power consumption.
Best practices are implemented to drive continual improvement in reducing energy usage and tracking overall Power Utilization Effectiveness (PUE).

The cost of power is one of the most critical variables when measuring the total cost of ownership (TCO) for a data center, comprising at least 20% of total costs in an average data center configuration. Lock down that variable in a Sabey Data Center, designed and built to achieve the utmost in energy efficiency.
