Introduction

The unrestricted access to internet-based information demanded by the information society has led to an

exponential growth of both internet traffic and the volume of stored/retrieved data. Data centres are housing

and supporting the information technology and network telecommunications equipment for data processing,

data storage and data transport. They are required both by network operators (delivering those services to

customer premises) and by enterprises within those customer premises.

Data centres need to provide modular, scalable and flexible facilities and infrastructures to easily

accommodate the rapidly changing requirements of the market. In addition, energy consumption of data

centres has become critical both from an environmental point of view (reduction of carbon footprint) and with

respect to economic considerations (cost of energy) for the data centre operator.

The implementation of data centres varies in terms of:

a) purpose (enterprise, co-location, co-hosting, or network operator facilities);

b) security level;
c) physical size;
d) accommodation (mobile, temporary and permanent constructions).

The needs of data centres also vary in terms of availability of service, the provision of security and the

objectives for energy efficiency. These needs and objectives influence the design of data centres in terms of

building construction, power distribution, environmental control and physical security. Effective management

and operational information is required to monitor achievement of the defined needs and objectives.

This series of European Standards specifies requirements and recommendations to support the various

parties involved in the design, planning, procurement, integration, installation, operation and maintenance of

facilities and infrastructures within data centres. These parties include:
1) owners, facility managers, ICT managers, project managers, main contractors;

2) architects, consultants, building designers and builders, system and installation designers;

3) facility and infrastructure integrators, suppliers of equipment;
4) installers, maintainers.

At the time of publication of this European Standard, the EN 50600 series will comprise the following

standards and documents:

— EN 50600-1, Information technology — Data centre facilities and infrastructures — Part 1: General

concepts;

— EN 50600-2-1, Information technology — Data centre facilities and infrastructures — Part 2-1: Building

Recommended practices for energy management.

The inter-relationship of the standards within the EN 50600 series is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 — Schematic relationship between the EN 50600 series of documents

EN 50600-2-X standards specify requirements and recommendations for particular facilities and

infrastructures to support the relevant classification for “availability”, “physical security” and “energy efficiency

enablement” selected from EN 50600-1.

EN 50600-3-X documents specify requirements and recommendations for data centre operations, processes

and management.

EN 50600-4-X documents specify requirements and recommendations for key performance indicators (KPIs)

used to assess and improve the resource usage efficiency and effectiveness, respectively, of a data centre.

In today’s digital society data centre growth, and power consumption in particular, is an inevitable

consequence and that growth will demand increasing power consumption despite the most stringent energy

efficiency strategies. This makes the need for key performance indicators that cover the effective use of

resources (including but not limited to energy) and the reduction of CO emissions essential.

NOTE Within the EN 50600–4 series, the term “resource usage effectiveness” is more generally used for KPIs in

preference to “resource usage efficiency”, which is restricted to situations where the input and output parameters used to

define the KPI have the same units.

In order to enable the optimum resource effectiveness of data centres a suite of effective KPIs is needed to

measure and report on resources consumed in order to develop an improvement roadmap.

These standards are intended to accelerate the provision of operational infrastructures with improved

resource usage effectiveness.

This European Standard provides an overview of and defines general requirements for key performance

indicators specified in the EN 50600-4 series. The common objective of the KPIs is the effective or efficient

use of resources, for example:
• the minimization of energy and other resource (e.g. water) consumption;

• task effectiveness of the IT load (data processing, storage and transport) within the data centre,

maximizing the IT output with the minimum energy consumption;
• energy reuse in the form of waste heat, if possible;
• the use of renewable energy, both generated on site and off site.

Additional standards in the EN 50600-4 series will be developed, each describing a specific KPI for resource

usage effectiveness or efficiency.

The EN 50600-4 series does not specify limits or targets for any KPI and does not describe or imply, unless

specifically stated, any form of aggrega
