Schneider Electric is a global leader in energy management and automation solutions, including those for data centres. To help data centre designers and operators make informed decisions about data centre infrastructure design, we provide a variety of TradeOff Tools. These data centre tools enable users to compare the tradeoffs between various data centre metrics, such as data centre power usage effectiveness (PUE), data centre planning capacity, and data centre energy efficiency.
One of our key TradeOff tools is data centre capital cost calculator. This data centre tool enables designers to evaluate the cost tradeoffs between different data centre infrastructure design options, such as different cooling and power distribution systems. Another important data centre tool is the data centre planning capacity calculator. This tool helps planners estimate the amount of IT capacity that can be supported by a given infrastructure design.
We also offer a variety of data centre tools focused on energy efficiency, including the data centre energy efficiency calculator. This tool enables data centre operators to compare the energy efficiency of different infrastructure designs, considering factors such as data centre PUE and cooling efficiency.
