Green Data Center Forum 2011
Singapore, 31 Mar, 2011
Data centers can no longer pay scant attention to the rising costs of energy prices as power typically takes up half the operating costs of a data center. An energy efficient data center, along with concerns for its environmental impact, should now be in the radar of CXOs.
The Green Data Center Forum is a full day free event that brings together a host of distinguished speakers to share on various topics ranging from standards, best practices, energy assessment and innovations that will help the forum delegates embark on a journey to green or greener data centers.
What is Singapore Standard for Green Data Centers (SS 564:2010) ?
Data centers are heavy users of energy, and their energy bill typically makes up a significant portion of their operating budget. To help reduce the energy consumption and operating costs of data centers and enhance their competitiveness, this standard has been developed to help organizations establish the policies, systems and processes necessary to improve the energy efficiency of their data centers and lessen their impact on the environment.
This standard is a certifiable, management system standard that provides data centers with a recognized framework as well as a logical and consistent methodology to achieve energy efficiency and continuous improvement in this area. In addition, the standard recommends best practices data centers can adopt, and several metrics they can use to measure their performance and energy efficiency.
