The data center is ruled by two masters. Facilities control power, cooling, building systems and construction. IT is responsible for the equipment, software, process and service delivery to business units. The line between these two organizations has always been blurred and in these gray areas, cracks quickly become fissures when the data center is reconfigured, expanded, or relocated. The Green Data Center Alliance strives to be the central repository of information for myriad industries that design, build, operate and support data centers who wish to contain, control, and reduce power consumption inside the data center envelope.
