Measurement Criteria


  • Percentage of uptime, measured as the total time the data center infrastructure is operational divided by the total time in a given period. (e.g. 99.9% uptime)


  • Incident response time, measured as the average time taken to identify and resolve infrastructure-related incidents, ensuring minimal impact on operations.

Efficiency and Cost Optimization

Measurement Criteria


  • Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), measured as the ratio of total energy

consumed by the data center (including servers, cooling, and other infrastructure) to the energy consumed by the IT equipment alone (e.g., aiming for a PUE of 1.5 or lower).


  • Process improvement initiatives, assessed by identifying and implementing measures to optimize data center workflows, reduce waste, and enhance overall operational efficiency

Capacity Planning and Scalability
Measurement Criteria


  • Rack utilization rate, measured as the percentage of rack resources being utilized compared to the total available capacity (e.g., maintaining rack utilization rate above a specified threshold).


  • Capacity forecasting accuracy, assessed by comparing projected resource needs with actual usage patterns, ensuring the data center can scale to meet future demands efficiently.
