Upcoming Webinars & Events

Webinar: Saving Energy in Your Small Data Centers | September 28th 2 p.m. ET

Webinar features Steve Greenberg, a lead author of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s "Small Data Center Energy Savings Guide,"  who provides actionable guidance to save energy in small data centers (less than 5,000 square feet of computer floor). Small data centers are especially important because, while they house more than half of all servers (Shehabi et al 2016), they tend to have only fair energy management.

This webinar is particularly relevant to Federal data centers implementing the Office of Management and Budget’s Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI). REGISTER

Better Buildings Challenge Webinar: Big Results in Small Places: Exploring the Untapped Energy Efficiency Potential of Small Data Centers | January 9th 3 p.m. ET

Data traffic has grown tremendously in recent years, with no signs of slowing. Close to half of all the servers handling that data live in data centers less than 5,000 square feet; however these smaller data centers are often overlooked when it comes to energy efficiency. There are compelling benefits for deploying energy saving strategies in small data centers for institutions, state and local governments, utilities, and private companies. Learn about why effective energy management is worth your attention in small data centers, and which low-cost, high-win strategies can reduce energy demand. REGISTER
