Telecom Italia is Italy’s main information and communications technology (ICT) group and an important player on the Latin American market segment, which represents 38 percent of the company’s turnover. Today, Telecom Italia infrastructures and technological platforms allow voice and data to be transformed into advanced telecom services as well as leading-edge ICT solutions. The company is constantly innovating and incorporating new technologies into its offerings. Such a demanding goal, however, is putting pressure on data center energy consumption. To improve energy efficiency and better manage power consumption, it decided to run a proof of concept (PoC) on Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4807.
“The pilot shows that using the latest Intel processors with Joulex Energy Master* and Intel DCM, we could potentially reduce server power consumption," explained Luigi Bellani, IT infrastructure engineering director for Telecom Italia. "We may also be able to identify servers that are using too much power and replace them. Based on our experience and results to date, we believe Intel Node Manager could also help us further reduce power consumption.”
