Metrics to drive energy efficiency in the data center

The Data center industry is challenged to define performance-based metrics that will guide energy efficiency. Henry Wong, from Intel, discusses measurement of energy efficiency in the datacenter and offers insight into market trends, challenges, and solutions.  Intel insights on Energy Efficiency Metrics, video chat.

Intel looks to reduce its own internal consumption of energy and apply meaningful metrics to guide its actions.  Intel IT uses EDA MIPS, an electronic design automation meaningful indicator of performance, to support the management of server refresh (Intel on Server Power Measurement, PDF).  In addition, the company contributes to the enhancing the performance of the technology industry.  For eample, Intel is a collaborator in the development of best practices for data centers in India, in support of that country’s focus on design standards (Intel on Increasing Data Center Efficiency, PDF).
