Methods operators of data center infrastructure use to measure success worldwide 2019

As per data from a recent report, in 2019, 56 percent of respondents claimed that overall performance or utilization was their primary method of measuring success in relation to data center infrastructure, whilst a return on investment (ROI) was cited by 38 percent. These measures do not have a focus on reducing energy usage or lowering the environmental impact - measurements like total cost to the environment (TCE) or IT assets lifecycle, which would contribute toward this, were cited less often by respondents. Just 11 percent stated IT asset lifecycles as being a method of measuring the success of data center infrastructure.
