1.1   Scope This European Standard specifies processes for management and operating of data centres. Primary focus is on operational processes to deliver the expected level of resilience, availability, security and energy efficiency. Secondary focus is on management processes to align the actual and future demand of users. Figure 2 shows an overview of all processes. In addition, the transition from planning and building to operating a data centre is considered as acceptance test process in Clause 4. Although the focus is not on Key Performance Indicators (KPI), KPI are provided with the processes where applicable. NOTE 1   Problem Management is not included and can be set up when needed. NOTE 2   Only processes specific for data centres are in the scope of this document. Business processes like people management, financial management etc. are out of scope. NOTE 3   Be aware of the required specific DC people skills.  1.2   Conformance For a data centre to conform to this European Standard: a)   It shall implement a data centre strategy process; b)   It shall implement the following priority 1 processes:    Operations management;    Incident management;    Security management;    Customer management. c)   It shall determine the PUE; d)   it shall comply with Operational Excellence level 1.

This document specifies requirements and recommendations for those data centre spaces, and the systems employed within those spaces, in relation to protection against: a) unauthorized access addressing organizational and technological solutions; b) intrusion; c) fire events igniting within data centres spaces; d) environmental events (other than fire) within the data centre spaces which would affect the defined level of protection; e) environmental events outside the data centre spaces which would affect the defined level of protection. NOTE Constructional requirements and recommendations are provided by reference to EN 50600 2 1. Safety and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements are outside the scope of this document and are covered by other standards and regulations. However, the information given in this document can be of assistance in meeting these standards and regulations.

This document: a) specifies the Energy Reuse Factor (ERF) as a KPI to quantify the reuse of the energy consumed in the data centre; b) defines the measurement, the calculation and the reporting of ERF; c) describes the application of ERF and its discrimination from Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). The ERF does reflect the efficiency of the reuse process, which is not part of the data centre.
