This technical white paper addresses energy efficiencies created by the combination of Dell’s Chassis Management Controller and modular infrastructure

Executive summary

Because of rising power costs, energy efficiency is growing as a top of concern of data center managers. The M1000e thermal design and the 2700W power supply meet these concerns head on. This technical white paper addresses how the Dell™ PowerEdge™ M1000e infrastructure directly improves the energy efficiency of current and future data centers through a combination of hardware and software improvements.

Through higher power density, load balancing, and improved energy efficiency, hardware directly affects a data center’s operating cost. The Dell Chassis Management Controller (CMC), which is a critical part of all Dell blade servers, provides software features that help the 2700W power supply perform at maximum efficiency. Features such as dynamic power supply engagement (DPSE), maximum power conservation mode, and power monitoring help data
