Software-Defined Electricity is a PERMANENT solution to the following problems:
3DFS Technology provides electrical network stability, reduces energy costs and makes data centers safer, more efficient and stable.
The increased control and efficiency experienced with Software-Defined Electricity reduces data center energy expenses.
Savings will be noticed in some of the following ways:
Savings on Operational Expenses Through Electrical Efficiency
Data centers save up to 15% in electricity consumption
Electricity wasted as heat is instantly prevented for the entire network (i.e. transformers, PDU, UPS, power supplies, energy storage, lighting, HVAC motors, etc.). This is a direct kW savings and also reduces the runtime of heat evacuation equipment including shortening HVAC cycles. Direct savings are multiplied in areas where utilities penalize with high demand charges.
Maintenance/Replacement Savings Through Protection
Data centers save up to 25% from their annual R&M budget
The data center assets (i.e. servers, PDU, UPS, power supplies, switches, routers, lighting, HVAC motors, sensors, etc.) powered by uncontrolled electricity are consuming more energy, working harder and failing sooner than they should. Software-Defined Electricity dynamically maintains perfect power in the facility, protecting devices from the wear and tear and increasing their useful lifespan.
SLA Savings By Increasing Uptime
Data centers add an additional 9 on their uptime
Maintaining uptime during transition between power sources from grid power, to UPS, to generator/batteries, back to grid power is the riskiest event for downtime. Software-Defined Electricity maintains a stable voltage and preventing transients from poisoning the electrical network for continuous, dynamic protection from downtime.
Increase Resale Value of Old Equipment
By protecting the assets in the data center with Software-Defined Electricity during operation, the resale value of those assets is substantially higher than equipment powered by uncontrolled electricity. This can help offset upgrades to assets and infrastructure and improves the quality of lower tier data center’s that rely on legacy equipment.
No matter the design, Software-Defined Electricity guarantees improvement to the electrical network stability and uptime.
Increased stability will be noticed in some of the following ways:
Operational Improvement Through Heat Reduction
20 degree temperature drop in infrastructure and assets
Wasted electricity and work is exhibited as heat everywhere in the electrical network (i.e. transformers, PDU, UPS, power supplies, energy storage, VFDs, lighting, HVAC motors, etc.) 3DFS Technology maintains electrical energy as electricity preventing it from converting to heat and reducing the network efficiency.
Operational Improvement Through Increased Uptime
Data centers increase their uptime by dynamically controlling the electricity
Software-Defined Electricity self-heals the data center electrical network by immediately adjusting, correcting, and balancing every microsecond to ensure ideal energy transfer. This approach neutralizes cascading electrical events (i.e. transients, surges, sags, swells, etc.), increasing uptime.
Operational Improvement Through Data and Analytics
Every single device and event that occurs in an electrical network can be identified, tracked and monitored
The data collected over time will become the specific operational footprint of the data center. Having this true energy baseline of the data center will allow the company to discover efficiencies in the energy profile that otherwise could not be seen.
Operational Improvement Through Budgeting and Forecasting
Device level energy profiles over time provide exact data for financial modeling
Energy budgeting and forecasting typically allows for a large variance because of the volatile nature of pricing and consumption. Software-Defined Electricity eliminates that variance by ridding the network of electrical waste, providing the ultimate in energy accountability.
3DFS Technology opens a new, non-invasive layer of energy data and analytics with the power of edge computing and electrical correction. The data and analytics possibilities for data center environments are staggering.
