Forecasting and measuring the total
cost of ownership (TCO) for Data Center Physical Infrastructure (DCPI)
is essential for return-on-investment (ROI) analysis. Oversizing is the
main contributor to excess TCO. Oversizing creates inefficiencies in the
data center including excess capital cost, operating cost, and
specifically energy cost. The average data center operator can achieve
the highest return investment in relation to DCPI through rightsizing.
Right-sizing the DCPI system to the load is the key to optimizing TCO
and has the most impact on DCPI electrical consumption. Right-sizing
can potentially eliminate up to 50% of the electrical bill in real-world
scenarios. For example, potential electricity cost savings for a
typical 1 MW data center has been shown to be $2,000,000 to $4,000,000
over a typical 10-year life of the facility. Data center efficiency is
key to controlling your energy costs and should be a topic of
significant importance to all data center operators. Join us for
breakfast and an educational presentation that examines right-sizing
PRESENTATION TOPIC HIGHLIGHTS:
-TCO cost drivers and opportunities to control TCO.
-Information and statistics related to over-sizing.
-Practical advantages of right-sizing.
-Energy consumption reduction in DCPI equipment.
-Examine key reasons why the industry is moving toward modular, scalable DCPI solutions.
are invited to stay after the educational presentation to walk through a
demonstration data center and experience InfraStruXure architecture
from APC by Schneider Electric. All attendees are eligible for a free
Critical Facility Energy Profile (CFEP) conducted at their own facility.

ABOUT THE GUEST SPEAKER:
Melchert has been working with critical facilities since 1992. He has
lead the efficient build out of new data centers such as Sisters of
Mercy hospitals and has managed critical facilities to include ConAgra
Foods, Coca-Cola Enterprises and the Department of Education. For
Schneider Electric, Don is now the primary instructor for Data Center
University, bringing with him the knowledge and experience gained from
assisting customers throughout North America become more self sufficient
and energy conscious.
