The Asia-Pacific region has now overtaken North -America in terms of power consumption in data centres. It is expected that energy consumption will grow significantly higher in the coming years. In this presentation, the speaker will share the different solutions to reduce the growing power consumption in the data centre. Amongst other things, examples for efficient data centre cooling and power distribution will be explained. Applying these measures will certainly lead to reduced power consumption, resulting in a reduction in costs and a smaller impact on the environment.
