How we improve Data Centres
Zonal Heat Management
With the help of zonal heat management, smart workload orchestration will be able to transfer the workload from hot areas to colder areas to keep the system thermally balanced for even better energy efficiency. Furthermore, to benefit from different outside variables (like seasonal characteristics, outside temperature and time differences), smart workload orchestration of ECO-Qube will be able to transfer the workload between different data centres from different buildings, cities, countries and continents to benefit from the best conditions for the minimum energy consumption.
ECO-Qube will change the conventional sensor approach for thermal mapping, replacing the sensors with digital components’ own sensors. This will allow ECO-Qube to create a dynamic zonal heat map to be used by zonal heat management system which will also benefit from digital components power consumption to predict the thermal changes in advance to maintain the thermal balance.
Identification of hot spots and optimisation of air flow and cooling power via artificial intelligence by simultaneously controlling CPU loads and the energy management system.
ECO-Qube is the holistic approach for data centre cooling that will contribute in global endeavor to reduce energy consumption by achieving 20% energy savings and 20% CO2 emissions reduction. ECO-Qube’s smart cooling system will combine smart monitoring capabilities with advanced modelling and simulations techniquest to adapt simultaneously both, the cooling system and IT devices load for the best airflow and cooling performance with minimum energy consumption.
Smart Workload Orchestration
ECO-Qube brings workload management on another level by benefiting from zonal heat management system which allows ECO-Qube to realize smart workload orchestration by virtually mapping the servers to create a thermal balance to reduce the cooling power consumption with the IT power consumption by conventional smart workload orchestration.
ECO-Qube introduces an innovative cooling solution which focuses on energy savings for data centre components with the highest amount of electricity consumption; computing equipment (CPU, power supply, storage etc.; ~50%) and cooling systems (~40%). ECO-Qube approach includes preventive strategies to reduce consumption of the computing equipment & cooling systems and supportive strategies to achieve a high share of the ICT energy consumption covered by sustainable energy sources.
