Costs Of Your Power & Cooling You Shouldn’t Overlook (2) (1)

Most businesses have grown accustomed to the costs of powering mission-critical infrastructure and maintaining secure, reliable computing environments. Power and cooling environments are indeed essential components that directly impact the performance and reliability of mission-critical infrastructure.

However, what most businesses fail to consider are the hidden costs of these environments. This blog post will delve into the five hidden costs of powering and cooling environments that most businesses overlook.

1. Energy Consumption Costs:

Powering mission-critical facilities and computing environments requires a lot of energy. Most businesses often overlook the cost of energy consumption. In the long run, these costs can be astronomical. Facility managers must consider energy-efficient solutions and renewable energy sources to keep energy consumption costs low.

2. Maintenance Costs:

 Maintaining a power and cooling environment can be an expensive affair. The costs can vary depending on the type of equipment and technology in use. The costs associated with the maintenance of such environments can significantly impact businesses’ bottom lines. Regular maintenance is crucial in avoiding unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs.

3. Human Resource Costs: 

Building and maintaining a power and cooling environment requires skilled engineers and IT teams. Most businesses often overlook the human resource costs associated with maintaining these environments. These costs include salaries, training, and insurance benefits. It’s important to factor in these costs when budgeting for a power and cooling environment.

4. Equipment Costs: 

Purchasing and installing power and cooling equipment can be an expensive undertaking. Most businesses overlook the equipment costs and end up purchasing outdated or overspending on unnecessary equipment. Investing in high-quality and cost-efficient equipment can help reduce long-term investment costs.

5. Downtime Costs: 

When a power and cooling environment fails, the downtime costs can be substantial. Downtime results in loss of productivity, revenue, and customers. As such, facility managers need to invest in reliable and secure power and cooling environments to minimize the risk of downtime.
