Wednesday data center tidbits.


I’ve just been reading about data center carbon reporting issues today. The handwriting is on the wall. Co-location data center operators darned well better have a method in place to measure the customer’s power consumption and a clause in the colo contract allowing the data center operator to apportion any carbon taxes back to the data center customer, otherwise, it’s going to get ugly.

From the same article I see APC say ““If we can give data centre managers just 20-percent accuracy on measuring the units of energy used by each server or application, that’s pretty darn good…”. Leaving data center operators to eat the carbon taxes on 80% of their customers power consumption is pretty darn good? I guess it beats eating 100% of it.
