Measuring Power & Efficiency in the "Green" Data Center

This paper looks at the current trends of increased power and cooling demands within the Data Center. These increased demands, increased costs and lack of available power in some locations are driving Data Centers to become more efficient. It explores the efficiency metrics available from The Green Grid and The Uptime Institute based on the new "greening" within the Data Center market. It provides the reader solutions for making these efficiency metric measurements and offers suggestions on how to increase Data Center efficiency.
