Data Center Maturity Model Assessment Tool

The Data Center Maturity Model (DCMM) touches upon every aspect of the data center including power, cooling, compute, storage, and networking. In addition, the levels of the model outline current best practices and a 5-year roadmap for the industry. You and your colleagues can use the new tool to assess your data center and IT portfolio against the DCMM, get access to your personal DCMM equalizer, and obtain benchmarking results.*

*Time to complete assessment: 20-30 mins for summary level, 60 minutes for those unfamiliar with DCMM.

Data Center Maturity Model

The Green Grid has developed the Data Center Maturity Model (DCMM) and supporting white paper to outline capability descriptors by area such that users can benchmark their current performance, determine their levels of maturity, and identify the ongoing steps and innovations necessary to achieve greater energy efficiency and sustainability, both today and into the future.  The maturity model touches upon every aspect of the data center including power, cooling, compute, storage and network. The levels of the model outline current best practices and a 5-year roadmap for the industry.

Power Usage Effectiveness Estimator

The Power Usage Effectiveness Estimator will allow you to enter data on the estimated power usage of the components for a data center facility in order to properly estimate the PUE™ of the facility. This tool includes the concept of physical boundaries within a data center and also reports partial PUE™ for these boundaries. Results of the PUE™ estimation can be saved as PDF or CSV files, in a URL for later reference, or emailed. All data is saved anonymously.

Power Configuration Efficiency Estimator

The Power Configuration Efficiency Estimator is an interactive online tool that The Green Grid has created as a companion to the “Quantitative Efficiency Analysis of Power Distribution Configurations for Data Centers” White Paper. The PCEE tool allows users to recreate the White Paper’s configurations and comparisons and create and compare your own configurations by using additional pre-loaded components and creating components with your own data.
