Keynote: Unleashing the Metrics of Cost and Performance
Many billions of dollars a year are spent in the design, construction and operation of mission critical data centers. For an industry that supports the core of the global business economy and impacts the lives of virtually everyone on the planet, it is hard to believe that so little of what we do is driven by a common set of measurable metrics. The introduction of the PUE metric in 2006 was a major leap in beginning to define performance but it only addresses one slice of a very large pie. Numerous metrics have followed but none have achieved the same almost universal acceptance. In this presentation, David will discuss some of the historical challenges to metrics adoption and will take a deeper dive into the measurement of cost and performance and the tools that leading edge firms use to validate their performance.
