Optimize your data center with power and cooling efficiency

Data proliferation and increasing demands for faster processing can quickly overheat and exhaust IT investments. Dell power and cooling technologies can help you: 
  • Improve data center operations
  • Work toward efficiency targets and lower Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) numbers
  • Save on both capital and operational expenditures
Since 2012, we have reduced the energy intensity of our product portfolio 23.2 percent and our server portfolio by approximately 50 percent. Customers who purchased products in 2013 can expect to spend $449 million less on electricity to power their products over their lifetime compared to equipment purchased in 2012. As part of our Legacy of Good Plan, Dell has a goal to reduce the energy intensity of our entire product portfolio by 80 percent before 2020. 

Our power and cooling solutions incorporate years of comprehensive research and development on a wide range of data center equipment. In addition, we have been an ENERGY STAR® program partner for more than two decades, making hardware configurations available that enable you to compute more and consume less. Dell power and cooling savings can add up quickly, which can allow you to:
  • Increase performance per watt by 44 percent when you update your server and processor capability.¹
  • Save up to 77 percent average power using Dell Active Fabric Solutions over comparable solutions.²
  • Save up to 40 percent on the cost per port with Dell Networking N3024P as compared to the Cisco® Catalyst® 3750X-24P-S when each port is providing up to 30W of power.³
Contact a Dell expert and learn how to get the hardware performance you need without wasting your investment on powering and cooling your data center.

1 Results based on testing by Dell Labs in January 2012 comparing a Dell PowerEdge R720 configured with two Intel® Xeon® E5-2670 2.6GHz processors and 6 x 4GB LV-UDIMMs and a Dell PowerEdge R710 configured with two Intel Xeon X5675 3.06GHz processors and 6 x 4GB LV-UDIMMS. Actual performance varies based on configuration, usage and manufacturing variability.
