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 versus over-sizing.

-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.

Attendees 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. For additional details on the CFEP offer and to RSVP for this event please contact Ryan Mordhorst at or 720-975-4253.

Don 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.
