Today, the era of information explosion is propelled more and more by services such as online payment, navigation, and even virtualization. For all the data generated by these services to be stored and exchanged, data centers are mushrooming in order to fulfill this unstoppable growing trend. Furthermore, economic development leads to more constructions such as utilities, plants and factories. All these developments consequently result in more energy consumption.
Having more services use less energy is high priority for many entities, and that’s the main reason why energy management software such as SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) and DCIM (data center infrastructure management) are widely used, especially in large-scope installations that acquire data from power meters, UPSs, IEDs (intelligent electric device) , to name a few, for the purpose of energy control and efficiency.
