CERTIFIED ENERGY EFFICIENT DATA CENTER AWARD
CEEDA is an energy efficiency assessment framework addressing best practices which directly impact OPEX, providing a globally applicable certification and guidance on optimizing deployment of labor and CAPEX to maximize performance.
Already major data center operators from both the enterprise and service provider segments are leveraging CEEDA to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, energy efficiency and bottom-line performance to government, investors, analysts and clients.
With a global auditing footprint, organisations can initiate, implement and reap the reward of CEEDA within as little 12 weeks.
WHAT DOES CEEDA DELIVER TO YOUR ORGANISATION?
Multi-regional assessment, certification and benchmarking of estate performance.
Harmonization of best practices, across teams and across sites.
Specific assesment frameworks for Enterprises, Colocation Providers, Telcos - for both new and existing facilities.
On-going performance improvement feedback via an impact assesment, one year after certification.
Assessment report of compliance and gap analysis against energy efficiency best practices.
Authentication of energy efficiency performance metrics: PUE/CUE/WUE/ERE/GEC.
Recommendations for performance improvement - a guide to optimizing deployment of labor and CAPEX to maximize and sustain performance, delivering significant and sustained reduction on OPEX.
Multiple opportunities for demonstrating market position, online, in print and in video.
Assesses the incorporation of the most advanced energy efficiency best practices at the design stage, and also in the operating facility. By comparing sets of assessment data from each stage, builders and operators of new facilities are able to validate the integration of energy efficiency measures in the design, and then assess and certify the actual performance of the operational facility.
Enables owner-operators of existing facilities to validate and certify their on-going energy efficiency strategy. It helps to develop frameworks for maximizing the performance of their existing infrastructure assets and put operational disciplines in place to maintain them.
EXISTING ENTERPRISE, COLO AND TELCO DATA CENTERS
CEEDA provides frameworks adapted for the specific environmental, infrastructure and operational requirements of Enterprise, Colo and Telco class data centers, for both existing data centers and new builds.
For each of the three classes of data center assesed, CEEDA Design-Operate applies the process at the Design-stage and post-commisioning, at the Operate-stage, giving the status of implemented energy efficiency measures against ideal-case best practices.
DATA CENTER CLASSES ASSESSED
Allows colocation providers to demonstrate the implementation of energy efficiency best practice in the parts of the facility directly under their control, leveraging the findings of the assessment process to improve their operations. Major tenants of CEEDA certified colocation providers are also able to certify and optimize the operational performance of their IT structure, applications and management under a CEEDA Colo-Tenant process conducted in tandem with CEEDA Colo.
CEEDA Telco is adapted to the specific environmental and operational requirements of facilities which are dominated by telco equipment, but which retains the flexibility to deal with mixed-use enterprise and colo environments.
