Hi Abid, when it comes to energy efficiency, there are various practices being put in place these days including cooling equipment and AI, here’s an article that I think it’s thorough and helpful https://www.exittechnologies.com/blog/data-center/energy-efficiency-guide-for-data-centers/
I hope this helps with your question.
Thanks a lot for the help.
I worked on this topic 10 years ago at Microsoft and kept on looking and publishing on my blog about it for a while (https://ict4green.wordpress.com/tag/data-center/ ), the most effective decision was to bill internally based on energy consumption, not on CPU, storage, etc in order to shift developers to more efficient use of resources. https://blogs.microsoft.com/green/2016/10/27/energy-efficiency-and-designing-the-datacenters-of-the-future/
You should also take an holistic approach, remembering that HVC cost is very important and dependent from external temperature, presence of cold water sources, proper mapping of air flows and thermal map optimization (relocating load on VMs to limit hot spots). Obviously it is not possible to relocate all Datacenters near the poles, like FB did at Luleå, or on the sea (Google) or underwater (Microsoft) but even in Italy ENI did an excellent job https://www.eni.com/en_IT/results.page?question=green+data+center
Ad hoc design of HW (including on board battery as a complement to UPS and power peaks as did by Google) and power supply, is important, too.
Proper monitoring and forecast of system load allows to leverage dynamic, smart relocation of active VMs and to power down servers with low utilization.
If you are targeting sustainability, too, then the proper choice of a renewable (or at least with lower CO2 emissions), closer power source is relevant, too. If solar panels are installed on the roof you might also think to avoid double continuous to alternate electrical power conversion (but variability is still an issue). In order to increase the energy efficency some datacenters reuse the heat (often from the heat pump) to warm other close building or swimming pools. Greenpeace published several research and benchmarks, last one is www.clickclean.org
Blockchain and Machine Learning (training) are both power hungry scenarios that create new concerns for datacenter power management.
OpenCompute is another interesting source https://www.opencompute.org/search?query=energy+efficency
Thanks a lot very use full information.
