How Smaller Data Centers Can Enjoy Hyperscale Energy Efficiency 

By |November 1st, 2017|

A recent report by Berkeley Lab entitled, “United States Data Center Energy Usage Report,” the first comprehensive energy analysis of data centers in nearly a decade, notes that while large, hyperscale data centers are operating more efficiently, smaller data centers, which are expected to account for 60 percent of all data center energy use in 2020, remain largely inefficient. We explore how smaller facilities can gain similar energy efficiency as the hyperscalers in our post on Computing Now.
