Carbon Relay’s Predict product also helps customers boost their data center energy efficiency to reduce consumption and costs, as well as CO2 emissions. Predict gives data center operations managers and facilities professionals predictive intelligence about their environments’ energy consumption to guide them to the right operational decisions for maximizing the energy efficiency of their data centers.
Deployment is an easy and straightforward process with only minimal hardware integration required. Predict leverages the historical data collected by the thousands of IoT sensors inside data centers to train itself. Predict uses this data–such as temperatures, power levels, and airflow rates – to orient its models on power usage effectiveness (PUE), and then to predict sensor readings for the immediate future (the next hour, day or week).
Through integration with data visualization tools, Predict highlights efficiency opportunities via dashboards with intuitive graphics. This makes it easy for managers to focus on and prioritize these items and take the appropriate actions. Predict’s insights can also help data center managers intervene early with energy-related operational issues and take swift action to prevent them from becoming larger problems.
