Monitoring of Data Centers using Wireless Sensor Networks

  • 3727 Accesses

Abstract

As data center energy densities, measured in power per square foot, increase, energy savings for cooling can be carried out by applying WSN technology and using the gathered information to efficiently manage the data center.
