Peter Gross: Time to Move Beyond PUE in Measuring Data Center Efficiency

Peter Gross – the man considered the father of the data center – shares his thoughts on the importance of moving beyond PUE as a measure of data center efficiency. “We can achieve a lot more cost reductions and performance improvements by looking beyond PUE and on the other side of the meter to distributed generation and how we bring power to the data center.” Mr. Gross currently leads the Mission Critical Systems group at Bloom Energy, the leading manufacturer of solid oxide fuel cells. Prior to joining Bloom, he was the Managing Partner for HP’s Carbon, Power and Critical Facilities Services. Before that, he co-founded EYP Mission Critical Facilities, Inc., the premier consulting and engineering firm dedicated to the design and operations of data centers. Watch the video:
