AiNET MicroMetering™ service provides all data center colocation customers with cost-savings, power redundancy and better scalability. Frequently, data center customers are charged based on the capacity of their electrical service. Metered power has advantages over capacity based power and offers cost savings up to 70%.
AiNET MicroMetering offers all data center colocation customers these benefits:
- Cost Savings – AiNET MicroMetering™ saves data center colocation power & circuit charges up to 70% compared to traditional provisioning.
- Pay for Usage, not Capacity –Like the simple residential electricity billing customers are used to, data center colocation customers will pay for the power they use, not the capacity of their power circuits. Customers pay for a committed level of power, and only what they use. The service makes power usage “burstable” just like Internet bandwidth.
- Affordable Redundant Power – Data center colocation customers often pay a premium for the extra protection of redundant (A + B) power circuits. MicroMetering™ links pricing to power usage, not the electrical configuration, enabling high reliability power configurations more affordable. AiNET customers benefit from robust reliability without additional power fees.
- Build for Tomorrow’s Needs, Today – MicroMetering™ enables an entirely new way of building data center infrastructure. Customers can pre-install the power capacity and density they will need, as early as move-in. Customers are only charged for the energy they use. When growth demands higher usage, the power capacity is already available. Customers can easily upgrade from low efficiency/density servers to high efficiency/performance servers without modifying their data center space or electrical configuration. Power use can grow smoothly over time, and new equipment can be installed without major growth related expenses.
Your costs are linked to your usage, your energy conservation pays with MicroMetering. For example, industry-leader Intel® has shown that users can reduce peak power consumption by 20% without a reduction in performance using metering information. Control costs by controlling your own power consumption and save.
AiNET uses MicroMetering and other technologies to work with customers, manufacturers, and software developers to deploy next-generation solutions.
