Credit Suisse Zurich Datacenter Saves Up to 50% Electricity Thanks to Innovative Management System

An innovative method of saving the energy consume by data centers has been invented by EPFL scientists and applied for Credit Suisse in Switzerland. The solution, developed at the Embedded Systems Laboratory at EPFL, will save up to 50% of the energy currently used.

The Power Monitor System and Management uses a set of (probably Hall) sensors connected to the server racks’  main power cables and measures the current passing through. Then, the consumption is logged and sent to a software feedback system that adjusts the load on each server.

“Two servers running at 40% of their capacity each, consume much more than only one at 80%,” said David Atienza, ESL director.

The system has already been implemented on the racks of some 5,200 servers in Credit Suisse‘s Zurich datacenter. The institution had been planning such a “virtualization” approach for about six years.

They’re now happy about the space savings the energy-saving system is able to offer them, by allowing to confine the servers in a smaller place, since heat is no longer one of the biggest issues.

    Swiss Bank
    Accounts. Jan.. 2015.

    Is your monies safe
    in these accounts —- definitely NOT.

    Would you get your
    money back if every body decided to withdraw all their accounts –
    NO WAY.

    Economic Experts
    say that there would only enough money to repay 50% of their clients.

    Are you going to be
    in the 50% — that loose your money.– Get it out NOW.

    2012 — – June.
    — Published in Anglo INFO .Geneva.— USA Trust Fund Investors were
    sent false and fraudulent documents by Pictet Bank.Switzerland. in
    order to collect large fees. ( Like MADOFF) —Even after the SEC in
    the USA uncovered the fraud Pictet continued to charge fees and drain
    whatever was left in these accounts. Estimated that $90,000,000
    million lost in this Pictet Ponzi scheme.

    2012 – – – July.
    — De – Spiegel. — states – Pictet Bank uses a letterbox
    company in

    Panama
    and a tax loophole involving investments in London to gain

    German
    millionaires as clients.

    2012
    – – – August —- German Opposition Leader accuses Swiss Banks of
    “organised crime.”

    All
    the fines that crooked Swiss banks have incurred in the last few
    years exceeds £75.Billion.

    It
    is also calculated that the secrecy ” agreements” with
    regards to tax evation by their clients will cost the banks another
    £450 Billion.( paid out of your monies.)

    The
    banks are panicking — the are quickly restructuring their banks
    —- from partnerships —

    to
    ” LIMITED COMPANIES.” —– this will probably mean that
    in the future — they could

    pay
    you only 10% of your monies ” if you are one of the lucky ones”
    —- and it be legal.
