Power System Integration & Optimization—Keep your Lamborghini Out of the Ditch
Learning Objectives - After this course, you should be able to:
- Describe how system automation assists in improving system performance and energy consumption.
- Explore how cloud-based monitoring affects current and future approaches to automation and monitoring.
- Identify the biggest trends and busts of automation and system integration.
- Examine the best methods of presenting and selling automation and monitoring improvements to management and customers.
While there are several avenues to achieve data center optimization and automation, most approaches offer more features than performance. Coupling optimization with integration offers huge operational upside, but without sound process and goal definition, you may not get where you want to go. This is not a place for fear, design, or software fetishes. We will present a process and ideas where IT and Site Operations can work together and separately in order to achieve substantial integration, energy, and management gains to the long-term benefit of your organization.
