Measuring server efficiency in the data center

Ebay’s Dean Nelson, also a member of industry organization Data Center Pulse, takes a closer look at discussions around new server efficiency metrics.

 The Data Center pulse summit was held in conjunction with the Green Grid Technical Forum in San Jose, California, last week. A proposed server efficiency metric – also covered in detail in FOCUS magazine with a special piece by 1E last month – looks at how you measure “miles per gallon of transactions per watt in the data center”, according to Nelson.

Nelson said server efficiency created one of the most lively discussions at the summit with peers from Equinix, @Tokyo Power, eBay, Microsoft and more joining the debate.
