One of the main overheads of running data centre or comms room equipment, servers and network infrastructure is power. Within power costs it is also important to remember indirect costs for power used, for example generating heat from equipment which then also needs power to be cooled, causing the cost to be compounded.
In 2022, power prices for many businesses could be set to rise by potentially 4x to 10x (1,000%) as soon as any fixed rate plans expire.
Whilst the unit cost of power is often out of a business' control (and unaffected by domestic price caps), the one thing you can control is your usage.
Prior to 2022, power costs were low enough that smaller choices in your network & infrastructure equipment and configuration did not have a significant impact on overheads, however increase power costs by 400% to 1000% and they become much more of a cost saving opportunity.
