This is a voluntary initiative, where knowledge exchange and annual updates are managed by the EU Joint Resource Centre. It consists of 2 pillars; First of all there is the Code of Conduct itself, with a more strategic description. In addition, an operational focus identifies key issues and agreed solutions, described in the Best Practices documentation. This initiative aims to bring all stakeholders together with the key aim of improving the energy efficiency by & in Data Centres. All stakeholders abide by a set of agreed commitments.
About EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres
In November 2008, the Joint Research Commission of the European Union (EU-JRC) took the initiative to develop a voluntary code of conduct to improve energy efficiency in Data Centres. Today the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centre Energy Efficiency represents a voluntary program that is supported worldwide by manufacturers, service providers, independent experts and operators of Data Centres.
Goal of the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres
The goal of the EU Code of Conduct is to motivate the IT industry into realising a higher level of energy efficiency and cost saving within their Data Centres. The Code is based on concrete guidelines and best practices that contribute significantly to reducing energy consumption in Data Centres by the core infrastructure as well as IT.
To whom does the Code of Conduct for Data Centres apply?
All Data Centre operators and companies with Data Centres can become participants of the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres. In addition the Code is also aimed at manufacturers and IT Service Providers that align their solutions and services within the energy efficient best practice strategies and establish them on behalf of their customers. All Data Centre operators can simultaneously be ‘participants’ and ‘supporters’.
Advantages of participating in the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres
By cooperation with a Data Centre operator or a service provider that supports the Code, or through your own participation, you position yourself as a credible and innovative forward thinking company that is actively and voluntarily working toward improving the energy usage and environment.
How does Total IT Global contribute to the spread of the Code and how does it implement its best practice measures?
Total IT Global worked on developing their own range of partnerships, products and services designed to provide, support and maintain IT with an optimised energy efficiency within the Data Centre. As specialists in extending the life-cycle of hardware we pay close attention to configurations that limit energy consumption, without reducing the requirements. In future too, Total IT Global will continue their efforts within the Data Centre environment and will be working to actively spread the word of the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centre Efficiency and the best practices through our website, newsletters, presentations and events as well as the continuing development of solutions.
