Power management tech company Raritan, which makes the Power IQ Energy Management software for keeping tabs on data center racks and surrounding conditions, and EDSA Micro, which sells a power system management platform that predicts potential problems, have gotten together to provide energy efficiency ratings based on the Advanced Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) measurement.

A mouthful, isn't it?

More simply put, a new product from the two companies will pull the information necessary for tracking energy utilitization and performance. PUE examines how much power a company's IT systems draw on relatively to the overall electrical infrastructure in the facility in question. The Raritan-EDSA Micro solution collects info not just the IT systems on but the entire electrical infrastructure, including lighting, cooling and UPS systems.

The Advanced PUE metric is a relatively new one one that was specified and published by The Green Grid (the industry group creating various standards for data center efficiency). The main thing that it calls for is continuous and automatic collection of power information.
