To effectively and efficiently manage the power and cooling environments within a Data Center can be a real challenge for many businesses due the complexity and technological demands.  The aim of this presentation is to fully evaluate the business needs and the impacts being placed upon the power and cooling to ensure the delivery of those given needs.  To fully understand the capability and limitations of the power and cooling it is essential that site specific audits are undertaken to appreciate the given baselines (where you are). Allowing strategies to be implemented to correctly measure and monitor whilst incorporating the need to be pro-active with an aggressive preventative planned maintenance (PPM) program.  
 
Whilst adding the need to understand the capabilities and limitation through the continual process of life-cycle analysis (LCCA) and also in parallel fully appreciating the potential benefits presented by more efficient new technologies.
