    In this paper a suggested framework for defining and calculating IT energy efficiency in terms of compute, network and storage in conjunction with PUE is discussed. The combination of these metrics results in a new metric for the overall data center efficiency.

    To address energy and climate change in Singapore, the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS) and the National Research Foundation (NRF) jointly commissioned the Green Data Centre Roadmap, led by the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA).

    The Singapore Green Data Centre Technology Roadmap is the Infocomm Development Authority’s (iDA) 15 year plan that brings together energy efficient IT, infrastructure and data centre design concepts, setting a national framework to improve sustainability, reduce energy consumption and embedded energy and improve the energy efficiency of Facilities, Physical IT and Software.
