A Leap Forward in Efficiency with Real-Time PUE

Over at Datacenter Knowledge, Patrick Flynn from IOhttp://www.io.com/ writes one-time PUE measurements are not an effective measure of energy efficiency and that real-time PUE is the wave of the future. With a data center industry mandate for greater energy efficiency, we need to evolve to newer, enhanced measurement models. Though a retroactive, building-averaged PUE may serve to confirm overall progress, it falls short of helping to pinpoint opportunities for improvement.
