Information technology — Data centres — Impact on data centre resource metrics of electrical energy storage and export (Adopted ISO/IEC TR 23050:2019, first edition, 2019-03)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This document describes the treatment of data centre metrics in circumstances where electrical energy is stored and exported from within the data centre boundaries of other standards in the ISO/IEC 30134 series.
This document specifies the Excess Electrical Energy Factor (XEEF) as a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) to quantify the electrical energy provided back from data centre to the utility.
This document has the structure common to the standards of the ISO/IEC 30134 series.
