Study Questions

When reading, viewing, and listening, consider the following questions. You will need to do your own research to find some of the answers.

  1. What argument is the basis for the voluntary Code of Conduct for data centres?
  2. How can data centre infrastructure efficiency be measured?
  3. What expected minimum practices are laid out in the Code of Conduct for management, embedded energy, business requirements, and provisioning?
  4. What is the supposed benefit of appointing an energy czar? What situations prompted this suggestion?
  5. What is a proxy? What is it in the context of data centre energy efficiency?
  6. What proxies does the Green Grid recommend and why?

Note: These are not the discussion forum questions for Section 3.2. Use them for personal study, and you can post comments/queries related to these questions in the General Discussion Forum.  Be sure to use a brief descriptive title for your posting.
