Commercial buildings account for a huge percentage of power consumption today, and data centers play a major role in that. Businesses are spending an increasingly large portion of their IT budgets on maintenance, power and cooling. In 2006 alone, for every dollar spent worldwide on new servers, another 50 cents was spent on energy to power and cool them. Data centers account for about 5% of most companies' utility bills. As data processing requirements and energy prices continue to rise, it becomes increasingly important to plan, build and monitor data center facilities for maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
