Power utilization is possibly the main issue for co-location facilities today. The growth of 1U colocation (one rack unit), 2U Colocation, 4U Colocation, 1/4 rack colocation, 1/2 rack colocation, Full rack colocation and blade servers has increased the potential power needs for each unit.
The typical rack + power formula was that every rack would acquire a 20A (Amp) circuit, which would only be somewhat used in a set point.The emergence of capacity hungry technology has wrought some changes in the power demands that consumers place in co-location providers:Whereas some time ago a individual 20A circuit per cabinet had average power request of 2x 30A or 2x20A circuit, on behalf of an roughly 30% raise over the last three years.
Customers are now using more of the circuits they order. An average customer may have previously used the 10-12 A per rack, a small part of a 20A circuit. Now, colocation providers report that multiple customers now apply far more prepared existing capacity, only leaving enough headroom to restart the equipment when necessary.
Due to the intensifying power desires, power pricing volatility and re-energized interest in the actual power consumption, countless colocation providers set out to cover the actual power expenditure data as part of pricing, altogether in response to increased customer demand.
