Uhis intelligent use of available power can be realized with software . then be supplemented with battery storage to supply peak demand using power stored during low utilization periods. Timilarly, low priority workloads can be assigned to server racks that are only powered .@ respond to peak demand while managing other tasks to spread the power load. @ D D C self serviced users to deploy services and workloads in seconds, D power capacity available within existing systems. Uhis allows a data center’s server processing and storage capacity to expand without increasing power supply capacity and achieves considerable capital expenditure savings by not overprovisioning power. Gurthermore, the use of battery storage to provide peak shaving and load leveling can also enable VRT functionality within a data center or server rack to protect it from power outage. Understanding the data center ‘power challenge’ Uhe demand for Dloud data services continues apace as businesses and individual consumers become ever more reliant on remotely stored data that can be accessed over the Jnternet from almost anywhere. Jn anandd Disco has estimated that the emergence of the Jnternet of Uhings will result in some 50 billion “things” connected to the Jnternet by 2020 as a myriad of sensors and controls enable smart , , , .C plications, this is forecast to require a daily network capacity in excess of a zettabyte (1021 bytes) as early as 2018.
