Various industry bodies have put forth metrics to help data center managers and IT leaders benchmark themselves against their peers, and different IT shops are holding themselves to different standards. The Green Grid has set forth metrics for PUE, CUE and WUE as a form of efficiency measurement, and various local organizations have produced bechmarks to help judge success and effectiveness. This panel will look at the various metrics which have been adopted. Panelists will also discuss what end-users are using to measure their data centers' efficiency, and what technologies or tactics are having the most profound impact on their efficiency and availability.
