As promised earlier this week, the Green Grid is trying to kick things up a notch following the addition of M$oft and Intel to its ranks.
It has released three whitepapers:
The Green Grid Opportunity
The Green Grid examines why it is so important to define and propagate the best energy efficiency practices in datacenter operation, construction and design.
Guidelines for Energy Efficient Data Centers
The Green Grid provides a framework for improving the efficiency of both new and existing data centers.
The Green Grid Metrics: Describing Data Center Power Efficiency
The Green Grid explains the use of the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) metric, along with its reciprocal the Data Center Efficiency (DCE) metric.
