The Green Grid defined the Data Center energy Productivity (DCeP) metric to quantify the useful work that a data center produces based on the amount of energy it consumes. This metric intends to allow data center operators the ability to optimize the energy used based on the current workload and to facilitate comparisons before and after actions are taken. The Green Grid proposed eight proxies that could be used to approximate DCeP and solicited industry feedback to determine the criteria to use to evaluate the proxies. In this session, the presenter will review the proposed proxies to measure productivity and present a preliminary assessment of the top five evaluation criteria. The session will also cover experimental validation of the proxies that The Green Grid is conducting to assess ease-of-use and accuracy.
