White Papers

There is a lot of confusion over data centre size and density and soAFCOM the AFCOM Data Institute and Strategic Directions have been working together to create a Industry Framework for Data Centres.

This white paper outlines a standard set of facility size and density ratings to inform the development of regulatory obligations, such as building energy efficiency reporting, at the state, regional and local levels.

It answers the following questions:

  • Why does size and density matter?datacentre
  • Why are standard definitions for data centres needed?
  • What is the terminology developed to create an industry recognised language for Data Centres

Globally, countries apply different regulatory reporting obligations on data centers, particularly around efficiency and energy use, so it is vital that a common framework, language and set of definitions forms the basis of industry reporting, surveys, analysis and reviews.
