A guide to understanding top-down DCIM, and why it matters
The Certified Energy Efficient Datacenter Award (CEEDA) is a global assessment and certification program designed to recognize the implementation of energy efficiency best practices in operating data centers. The framework is progressive in terms of sophistication of best practices applied – reflecting the complex and holistic nature of data center operations - and is based on specifications drawn from ASHRAE, Energy Star, ETSI, EUCoC and The Green Grid.
The assessment process is designed to minimize the impact on your operations, with a significant proportion of the effort being conducted remotely at a pace which suits your requirements. Typically, the process may take between two and three months of lapsed time to complete from assessment initiation to generation of the report, recommendations for further improvement and certification.
