Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCIE)

Definition - What does Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCIE) mean?

Data center infrastructure efficiency (DCIE) is a metric used to evaluate the power or energy efficiency of a data center. It involves the evaluation and calculation of the overall energy consumption of a data center, specifically how it relates to the energy use of IT devices and equipment.

Techopedia explains Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCIE)

DCIE primarily helps in determining how energy efficient the IT resources and equipment within a particular data center are. It is a metric evaluated as a percentage. To calculate DCIE, the total energy consumption of all IT equipment and resources is divided by the entire energy consumption of a data center. This helps to identify how efficient the data center IT equipment is in relation to overall data center energy use. Moreover, similar metrics can also be evaluated for a specific node/device to provide more granular measures of DCIE.
