ESSA

The Dell Energy Smart Solution Advisor (ESSA) and Data Center Capacity Planner help IT professionals plan and tune their computer and infrastructure equipment for maximum efficiency. Offering a wide range of configuration flexibility and environmental inputs, both tools can help right size your IT environment.

ESSA is a model driven tool supporting a large number of products and configurations for infrastructure sizing purposes. ESSA models are based on hardware measurements with operating conditions representative of typical use cases. Workloads can impact the power consumption greatly, meaning the same percent CPU utilization and different workloads can lead to widely different power consumption. It is not possible to cover all the workload, environmental, and customer’s data center factors in a model & provide percent accuracy figures with any degree of confidence. With that said, Dell would anticipate (NOT guarantee or claim) a potential for some variation. Customers are always advised to confirm ESSA estimates with actual measurements under their own, actual workloads.
