Small Data Centers, Big Energy Savings

An Introduction for Owners and Operators

The purpose of this brief guide is to present opportunities for small data center owners and operators that generally make sense and do not need expensive assessment and analysis to justify. Recommendations presented in this report range from very simple measures that require no capital investment and little ongoing effort to those that do need some upfront funds and time to implement. The range of opportunities includes IT equipment, power, and cooling. This guide also notes the value of training for personnel involved in data center operations and management. References are also provided for further information. Author(s): Steve Greenberg, Magnus Herrlin
