Using the data center energy efficiency self-assessment tool is a good first step toward understanding your current energy usage and areas for improvement. This 12-question tool can highlight opportunities for energy efficiency improvement. You will be asked to answer questions in three main categories:
Awareness of power-related issues
Deployment of tactical quick hitters
Extent of strategic data center planning
Based on your answers regarding your current and desired state, you will receive recommendations for energy assessments, high density services, or data center consolidation and strategy services.
Data centers that use less energy, generate less CO2, and take up less space, can also save big money.
