Data centres are the engine rooms of today’s economy and like any other industrial process they consume vast amounts of energy, judged to be between 2 and 3% of European electricity production according to the EU.

Several bodies and organisations have set out to define the fundamental design and operational principles of data centres, these are:

  • USA - BICSI 002 Data Centre Standard
  • USA - TIA 942 - Design standard for data centres
  • USA - The Uptime Institute (TUI) - A ‘tiering method’ to describe data centre redundancy and resilience
  • Germany - BITKOM - A data centre availability rationale
  • EU - The EU Code of Conduct on data centres and associated Best Practice document.

Power, HVAC and data cabling account for 70% of construction costs whereas electricity accounts for over 50% of the running costs. The cost of electricity plus various legal requirements to cut carbon emissions are a major incentive to design the data centre to be as energy efficient as possible. The British Government has stated that it will be implementing the EU Code of Conduct wherever it can and for the private sector it will become a major marketing asset to be perceived to have EU ‘green credentials’.

This seminar from the IET and sponsored and delivered by Capitoline, the UKs leading independent Data Centre Consultant, will focus on four major elements in this one-day presentation.

The speakers will be Matt Flowerday and Barry Elliott who each have over 20 years experience in the communications industry and as founding partners of Capitoline have spent over 6 years as a specialist in data centre designers and auditors.
