ECN Interviews Ajith Jain About Energy in the Datacenter

Ajith Jain, Vicor’s director, global communications and computer unit, was recently interviewed by ECN Magazine about the challenges facing datacenter designers and the trends towards greater power efficiency. Jain covered a number of topics, including the drive to minimize the power consumed by datacenters that is not used by the IT equipment: “By using enhanced power conversion technology to cater to high power CPUs, memory and chipsets, datacenter operators can reduce power conversion losses and hence reduce the cooling requirements, which in turn reduces the total power consumed by the datacenter. This is often...
