SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A dozen of the industry’s greatest minds met last week to peer review and validate a framework designed to quantify and simplify data center sustainability during Data Center World 2022, March 28-31. Informa’s Data Center Efficiency Evolution Program (DEEP) team spent 18 months developing best practices in sustainable data center operations that twelve handpicked senior data center practitioners spent a day discussing, validating and adding to. The framework will serve as the foundation upon which DEEP certification will be based.
“It was an honor to participate in the debate, thought provoking discussion, and collaborative decision making with these passionate professionals. They brought decades of experience managing data centers to the discussion, and most importantly, a passion for simplifying sustainability for others,” said Liz Cruz, DEEP Director.
“This was an exercise the industry needed. I’m proud of the resulting framework and confident that it can be a powerful tool in both implementing and evaluating sustainable practices in thousands of data centers,” Ben Stewart, Senior VP of NTT Data Centers said.
