DLB Associates views The Green Grid as a key player in the efficient data center industry, and participates as a Contributor Member to help TGG continue its contributions to the whole IT sector. DLB began collaborating with TGG even before joining the organization. DLB founder, Don Beaty, was a co-founder of the ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9 which sets environmental specifications for data center temperatures and humidity. As a result of TGG’s work in promoting free cooling, TC 9.9 made modifications to their specifications to encourage end users to build and operate more efficient data centers.
DLB personnel, including Don Beaty, and CTO Mark Monroe have participated in many TGG Forums, Committees, and Work Groups. Mark, who previously served as TGG Executive Director, is currently participating in the Metrics and Measurement Work Group, the Data Center Energy Allocation Task Force, and in other Technical Committee work. Additionally, DLB Associates recently participated in the joint publication of the book, PUE: A Comprehensive Examination of the Metric, coordinating editing between The Green Grid and alliance member ASHRAE, and working with ASHRAE’s publications department to get the book to print.
