Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and its reciprocal Data Centre Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE) metrics were in introduced in 2007 by the Green Grid as a method of determining the relative efficiency of a server room or data centre facility.
PUE is a figure which is now recognised and reported at Board level within many organisations. Workspace Technology releases its sixth paper focused on data centre technology. This latest paper provides an overview of PUE and its importance in the drive towards energy efficiency and details how to deliver practical measurement within a data centre facility.
This paper provides an excellent introduction into PUE with an overview of its use, practical methods of measurement and of presenting the results in line with Green Grid recommendations.
Workspace Technology provides practical PUE measurement solutions with its EcoMeasure products and services.
