Here we present a novel, measurement-based method for characterizing and improving the energy efficiency of a data center (DC). The technique not only yields a clear set of measurement-based best practices metrics, but also provides clear guidance to a DC manager to substantially improve the DC energy efficiency. We describe a technology which exploits the(More)

This paper presents a tele-operative robotic mobile measurement technique for collecting temperature data in data centers. It provides highly effective data support to the analysis of data center thermal profiles, and plays an active role in improving data center cooling and energy efficiencies. With this technique, a human operator controls the navigation(More)
