2012 Forum – eBay Case Study

07 March, 2012 | Presentation

Dean Nelson, eBay

This session provides an overview of the case study conducted by eBay as they implemented a metric-based approach to drive the design and construction of a new high-efficiency data center. When eBay experienced the perfect storm of consolidation and growing demand for data center space in 2010, it took a holistic, end-to-end view of the space it was using, the servers it was deploying, and how its data centers were designed and operated. The approach that eBay followed sets an example of the benefits that can be achieved by utilizing The Green Grid’s Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) metric and by implementing the lessons of The Green Grid’s Data Center Maturity Model.
