Tasked with dramatically reducing carbon emissions, NASA is deploying power management software from Power Assure to aggregate power consumption data from its 75 data centres.
NASA is working under executive order 13514, which requires up to a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. The space agency started out with the premise that "you can't manage what you can't measure," said Chris C. Kemp, NASA CTO for information technology. "We wanted to make sure that the investments we made were targeted at the highest investment opportunities."
