Greentech Media interviewed efficiency executives on the most serious hurdle for efficiency in 2014.
Here is Vigilent CEO Mark Housely’s reply:
“We still encounter a legacy mindset for data center operations which is based on longstanding manual practices. This thinking perpetuates an “always on, all the time” practice for operation, which is absolutely wrong and unnecessary. Many data center managers are unaware of just how much information is available through monitoring sensors, as well as how to use this information to simultaneously reduce energy use and gain time and insight for more strategic, proactive planning.”
