Tracking and Managing Data Center Energy

I ran across two new tools tonight to help manage and track energy in the data center. On Monday IBM announced Energy Management software that is backed by nine big players.
"IBM is combining the new energy management software with partner solutions to provide customers with a comprehensive view of energy consumption across the enterprise -- not just in data centers but also in non-IT assets such as air conditioning equipment, power distribution units, lighting, and security systems."

Yesterday Federal Computer Week reported that the Department of Energy will soon unveil new tools to help data centers track total energy consumption. The data center Energy Profiler software suite will help calculate how energy is being used and identify potential cost savings.
