This whitepaper outlines several strategies on how data center designers and operators can reduce the negative effects of the industry. The combination of designing data centers, operating them, and planning the asset lifecycle with a vision for resource circularity opens vast opportunities for improvement.
White Papers include technical guidelines and recommendations developed collectively by Infrastructure Masons members. Our members have unique perspectives and insight built from their extensive experience. These papers are intended to help standardize and advance the industry.
Infrastructure Masons has created the Data Center Performance Index (DCPI) to objectively rate the actual performance of data centers. The DCPI and its component metrics are intended to be high-level, easily interpreted by the customer, and simply implemented by the data center provider.
