Retro-Commissioning Increases Data Center Efficiency at Low- Cost

As computing capacity within a data center shifts, their managers should ensure that its support infrastructure adapts accordingly in order to realize energy savings. Computing information technology (IT) servers and devices continue to advance and consolidate operations. These improvements can result in reduced space requirements for hardware and increased energy efficiency for computations. Therefore, data center operators can effectively reduce overall data center energy consumption by implementing a recalibration of infrastructure requirements on a regular basis. The Savannah River Site (SRS) data center is a good example of one such facility where this implementation resulted in energy savings.
