Integrated data center energy management is the implementation of a unified intelligent building strategy to optimize both IT and facility resources. By coordinating investment in energy conservation measures, equipment upgrades, and the use of software and services, integrated data center energy management promises to deliver greater energy and operational efficiency improvements to the facility or campus that hosts the data center. The idea is to leverage resources that can meet the needs of both the data center and the larger facility.
The intelligent building is defined by the integration of software and services to maximize energy and operational efficiency across building systems—from heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to lighting and plug loads. However, the data center has been widely omitted from the conversation. As building owners and relevant stakeholders invest in intelligent building solutions to deliver more comprehensive and insightful energy management, they are including onsite and enterprise data centers in their goals for holistic facility optimization. The utilization of intelligent building solutions and approaches across facility and IT systems will only increase over time. According to Navigant Research, the integrated data center is the next frontier for the intelligent buildings market.
