Overall data center efficiency includes networking, servers, the ability to use ‘free cooling,’ and other determinants of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Centralizing both IT operations and network equipment to gain energy efficiency and utilization for data centers requires two key metrics to measure TCO: Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCIE).
Extreme Networks is committed to reducing energy and promoting a greener world both with our networks and our business practices with our:
- Lifecycle approach to power efficiency and management, from product inception, through deployment and operation, and then onto eventual retirement
- View to minimizing the amount of hardware required, while leveraging power-optimized network processors, switch fabrics, and physical interfaces
- Tools for IT to more effectively monitor and manage power utilization in real time, and lower operational costs
