Dimension 85 Adds Data Centre Metrics Support to Assessor

Philip Vandenberg November 16th, 2009

London - To complement the strategic assessment functionality of Assessor, Dimension 85 Ltd has added Data Centre Metrics support. This new functionality enables organisations to collect and monitor the key data centre performance indicators, PUE and DCiE over time and align their progress to assessment-oriented change programmes.

Industry experts recommend the collection and monitoring of data centre energy consumption as the first phase on an energy management programme and Assessor now enables organisations to move away from unstructured spreadsheet reporting to a formalised, structured and fully documented method of data collection, storage and analysis.

"The addition of the data centre metrics functionality enhances the value of Assessor to our customers and provides Data Centre Managers with clear and concise tools for understanding energy issues, reduce energy costs and meet corporate energy commitments. This is a fast evolving area of the market and Assessor provides a clear cost effective choice for organisations that are looking to gain control over their energy consumption but are not yet ready to implement a comprehensive energy monitoring solution across their IT infrastructure. " said Philip Vandenberg of Dimension 85.

Assessor is a unique web-based service to help data centre owners manage their strategic energy efficiency initiatives. Assessor enables organisations to conduct benchmarks and assessments on data centre infrastructure and exploits the expertise and best practice recommendations of the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres Energy Efficiency. Using a proven and repeatable consulting methodology, Assessor delivers a series of management and tactical-level reports aimed at addressing energy efficiency issues and increases staff awareness of the subject.

With data centre energy consumption set to double by 2020, it is a concern for Governments worldwide. As technology changes to address energy issues, the problem requires a long term strategic approach based on the traditional management practices of benchmarking and assessment. Assessor fulfils this requirement enabling Data Centre Managers to eliminate costs and empower their own specialists to create high quality assessments and reports that enhances management decision making processes for data centre infrastructure change.

Assessor is suitable for any organisation, worldwide, that is concerned about its energy consumption and wants to conduct a programme of benchmarking and assessment without employing expensive external consultants or IT vendor's service organisations.

Dimension 85 Ltd is a best practice company specialising in IT and data centre energy issues and an approved Endorser of the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres Energy Efficiency.
