ETSI Releases KPI Standard for Data Center Energy-efficiency

ETSI has published a Data Centre Energy Management (DCEM) indicator standard to help measure energy efficiency and compare energy management efficiency in data centres.

The DCEM Global KPI specifies the coefficient or "Global KPI" of the eco-efficiency and energy management of data centres. It combines two indicators: one taking into account different sizes of data centre (S, M, L or XL) and a second incorporating 9 different levels of performance, similar to the energy classification model used for home appliances.

ETSI said its work will allow benchmarking of data centres or ITC locations in a wide range of industrial sectors.
