This paper is designed to help you understand the different data center efficiency metrics—and give you the questions to ask prospective colocation providers. Download now to learn how annualized PUE affects operating expenditures and peak PUE affects capital cost, as well as 8 key questions that’ll help you use these metrics to compare colocation providers.
