CBRE Case Study: At the End of the Day – It’s Lost Capacity

CBRE_WP_Header

Global Property Advisor, CBRE, has published this white paper “At the End of the Day – It’s Lost Capacity” as a roadmap to a fully deployed data center.

When CBRE asked Future Facilities to help save energy at the EMEA data center headquarters for a global banking organization, we sprang into action.

We used our pioneering ACE Datacenter Performance Assessment – made possible thanks to our industry-leading 6SigmaDC software tool – to highlight the potential for energy savings and to show CBRE how to recover lost capacity.

Crucially, by creating a Virtual Facility (VF) model in our software suite of each hall, improvements were tested before implementation without risking the availability of the 6,000 IT assets. That allowed us to give their client:

> Energy savings: $1.15M per year for a single datacenter of 22,000 sqft

> Recovery of lost IT loading capacity: CBRE estimates 350 kW

> Total Capacity Recovered: $8.75 Million

By the time we had finished, we’d not only saved vast sums of capital, but had also delivered a previously unheard of level of operational flexibility in those two data halls.
