Data centers are running out of power even as governmental environmental regulations are increasing and cost per watt is rising. Incremental power—when it is available—is even more expensive. Consequently, a growing number of companies are using data asset management software strategies to help better manage growth, and they are finding that these strategies can also reduce hardware power consumption and cooling needs.
