DCOI: The Federal Data Center Optimization Initiative
Announced in March and put into effect in August, 2016, the Federal Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) has much different goals and additional rules compared to its predecessor, the FDCCI. The goal is to reduce the government’s sprawling data center inventory and the amount of money it takes to maintain it. The DCOI stipulates the installation of Data Center Infrastructure Management in order to develop and report on data center strategies to meet the requirements.
The three main goals of DCOI:
- Data Center Optimization
- Cost Savings and Avoidance
- Closing Data Centers
