The customer saved :
- 4.88 GWh in energy consumption
- $586,570 in power costs
- 2841 tons of CO2
In the first year with Nlyte.
The customer, a large Media/Information company, decided to consolidate their traditional servers into blade servers to save space, reduce energy costs and avoid having to build a new data center architecture. They also wanted the ability to add assets to their facility more quickly and safely.
The customer determined that roughly 80% of their servers were utilizing just 10-15% of their CPU capacity. So as these traditional servers were transitioned to blade servers, which are more space and energy efficient, a data center consolidation ratio of 9 to 1 was achieved. 1,243 traditional servers were consolidated into approximately 137 blade servers, which resulted in a 45% energy savings.
This consolidation could not have been achieved without the constant, real-time data center monitoring of Nlyte Energy Optimizer, to make sure load thresholds were not reached or exceeded. Using these same real-time metrics allowed users to place assets more quickly and in complete confidence that capacity was available.
The customer said: “If I don’t have Nlyte, I would have to send my guy to each cabinet to check the current load; then we do our calculations. It can take a week. With Nlyte Energy Optimizer, we get results in 20-30 minutes.”
