Power utilization and monitoring of environmental factors are key issues for data centers. Telx, a New York City–based company that operates 15 data center collocation facilities in the U.S., has used FieldView Solutions’ Web-based data center infrastructure management software since 2009. Telx uses the software for power monitoring and for control of temperature and humidity in its data centers.
“We want to run our sites as efficiently and as green as possible,” says Mike Terlizzi, Telx’s vice president of operations. “Our main goal is to limit our overall power demand. Power utilization is one of the many metrics we use to measure efficiency.”
