knowpower

Power is one of the two most important cost factors of hosting a single server or an entire rack of servers. Here are some fundamental facts on how power consumption is measured.

  • Unit for power is a ‘Watt’
    • Watt is a product of amperes (Amp) and volts (V)
  • Power consumption rate is measured in KW/hr (Kilo Watts consumed per Hour)
    • Power consumed by a 20 Amp – 208 Volts Circuit is 20 x 208 arrow 4160 Watts or 4.16 KW/hr
    • For a 30 day month, total monthly power consumed by a 20 Amp – 208 Volts circuit will be 4.16 KW/hr x 24 x 30 arrow 2,995 KW.

Calculate your power need

This is only an estimate. Actual results may vary. This calculates power utilized by a rack and does not include power consumed by the hosting facility.

** We recommend at least two 20 Amp – 208 V circuits per 42 U rack


know bandwidth

The most important factor to consider while hosting a server facility is bandwidth or data transfer throughput needed. Bandwidth directly affects server performance and end user experience.Our experts help you choose from options that provide the best performance and value for your operational requirements. Here are some fundamental facts on how data and data transfer are measured.

  • GB (represents volume of data) – Giga Bytes
    • 1 GB arrow 1024 MB (Mega Bytes)
    • 1 MB arrow 1024 KB (Kilo Bytes)
    • 1 KB arrow 1024 Bytes (B)
  • The most granular unit of measurement for data is bit represented by lowercase b
    • One Byte (B) arrow 8 bits (b)
  • 1GB arrow 1024 x 1024 x 1024 x 8 b
  • Mbps (represent data transfer rate) – Mega Bits per Second
    • 1 Mbps arrow 1024 Kbps (Kilo bits per second)
    • 1 Kbps arrow 1024 bps (bits per second)
  • 1 Mbps arrow 1024 x 1024 bps

want to know your bandwidth requirement?

**When planning bandwidth required for your data center, industry best practices recommend that you plan for 85% utilization.
