Telecom Italia Successfully Powers Down Energy Consumption

Telecom Italia trials Intel® Data Center Manager and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4807 in bid to reduce energy consumption

Telecom Italia is Italy’s main information and communications technology (ICT) group and an important player on the Latin American market, which represents 38 percent of the company’s turnover (as at November 2012). Today, Telecom Italia infrastructures and technological platforms allow voice and data to be transformed into advanced telecommunications 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 placing pressure on data center energy consumption. To find a way of improving energy efficiency and better managing 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.

• Power reduction. With seven data centers across Italy and growing services, Telecom Italia needed to make its data center operations more energy-efficient
• Future proof. Its long-term strategy is to develop energy-efficient and cost-effective platforms from which to launch its new services.

• Energy monitoring pilot. Runs a PoC on servers powered by Intel Xeon processors E7-4807, and Intel DCM, to regulate power consumption
• Large fall. Pilot shows Intel®-based servers have the potential to reduce energy consumption by up to 20 percent

• Strategic goals. Intel® technology has the potential to help Telecom Italia meet its strategic objective of reducing operating expenses for power consumption while delivering the best possible service for fully managed cloud services
• Pilot extension. Now considering extending the pilot to incorporate Intel® Node Manager (Intel® NM) together with the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family, to further explore the development of energy-efficient server platforms
