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. DCMM Standard E and A0 poster files are available for download. 

Fantastic content

At last a roadmap of how to do better
