And it’s no wonder – it saves space and energy while letting you maximize your IT resources. But smaller footprints can come at a cost. Virtualised servers, even at 50% capacity, require special attention to cooling, no matter their size or their location.


1. Heat Server consolidation creates higher densities – and higher heat – per rack, risking downtime and failure.


2. Inefficiency Perimeter cooling can’t reach heat deep in the racks. And over- cooling is expensive and ineffective.


3. Power Events Virtual loads move constantly, making it hard to predict available power and cooling, risking damage to your network.


The right-sized way to virtualise.


With the new HD-Ready InfraStruXure architecture, you can take on high density by cooling the virtualised high-density row, controlling power at the rack level, and managing the system with advanced software and simulation. Though virtualising saves energy, true efficiency also depends on the relative efficiencies of power, cooling, and servers. Right-sizing one and not the others (See Figure 1) leaves efficiency savings on the table. To right-size, depend on the efficient, modular HD-Ready InfraStruXure and neutralise heat at the source. Equipment will be safer and more efficient running closer to 100% capacity.


Don’t agonize, virtualise.


What are you waiting for? With HD-Ready InfraStruXure architecture anyone can virtualise…anytime, anywhere. Just drop it in and go.
