WESTFORD, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Future Facilities Inc, a leading provider of data center design and operational management software, today announced that its Applications Engineer, Tom Wu will discuss data center fragmentation and Future Facilities’ new performance assessment called the data center ACE Score (Availability, Capacity, and Efficiency) at this week’s AFCOM New England Meeting at the Westford Regency in Westford, Mass.
“I look forward showing attendees how they can minimize fragmentation of capacity and better balance cost and performance”
The ACE Score is determined using a Virtual Facility - a Predictive Model of the data center that simulates the physical operation and used to balance cost and performance. The Score is a guide for data center operators improve availability, capacity and optimizing of their data centers.
The Assessment compares data center performance in three categories of the present-day configuration to its optimal values as specified by its design. Using Predictive DCIM, the data center operator can optimize their data center to improve performance at a known cost.
The presentation will address:
• Data center Total Cost of Ownership
• The biggest financial problem of data center ownership: Lost Capacity
• How Capacity is lost and how it can be reclaimed
• How fragmented operational objectives destroy Capacity
• The pitfalls of industry “best practices” that are promoted as ways to protect Capacity
“I look forward showing attendees how they can minimize fragmentation of capacity and better balance cost and performance,” said Tom Wu. “The ACE metric was developed to help data centers compare operational performance to design intent, track the performance over time, and ultimately make informed and effective decisions during operation to bring performance to its highest level.”
