DCR provides professional energy efficiency services for data centers to CIOs, facilities management professionals, sustainability managers, corporate councils for environmental responsibility, and other C-level executives. DCR helps customers to lower their operating costs dramatically by implementing best practices for energy efficiency in the data center.
In most data centers, 50% of a data center’s operating costs are due to the electricity consumption to power and cool IT equipment (compute/storage/networking). For example, IDC estimates that the energy expense for power and cooling associated with the worldwide server installed base represents $32.6 billion, a number that has been increasing steadily over the past five years at a rate of approximately 31.2%. Energy efficiency services are crucial to help reduce these rising costs.
This is an ideal time to measure your Industrial Efficiency in order to determine which of your applications are strategic, to determine which can be moved to the cloud and which can be virtualized. This will result in having the baseline information to identify which equipment should be replaced and can qualify for energy rebates.
DCR can define the baseline metrics of inefficient IT equipment to maximize energy rebates offered by utility companies. which accelerates customers’ ROI for IT projects and increases cash flow. DCR manages the rebate negotiation process with utilities as a turnkey service, effectively and expeditiously, to ensure the energy rebate approval.
DCR provides take-out and tech refresh services by buying back older, inefficient IT equipment. This reduces your operating costs and infuses cash on your balance sheet above and beyond the approved energy rebate.
