As microgrids are becoming the norm and workload orchestration (explained in the session) has become a norm, it's time to tie together both IT and facilities for the good of compute. We have long known that power is the greatest data center expense, but have been limited to the best way to have a meaningful impact. In this session, you will learn what software defined power is, how it works, and the key steps to implementing it. In short, the who, what, where and how to release stranded capacity, better manage used capacity, and gain economies from artificial intelligence surrounding power to compute knowledge. This is a single technology that can prove helpful for end-users and colos alike.
