How to calculate the efficiency of your data centre

kristy Resource Efficiency

A free to download white paper on the problems and solutions of measuring data centre efficiency

Before data centre infrastructure efficiency can be benchmarked using PUE or other metrics, there must be agreement on exactly which power consumptions constitute IT loads, which consumptions constitute physical infrastructure, and which loads should not be counted.

Unfortunately, commonly published efficiency data is not computed using a standard methodology, and the same data centre will have different efficiency ratings when different methodologies are applied.

This paper explains the problem and describes a standardised method for classifying data centre figures for efficiency calculations.
