DCOI: The New Federal Data Center Optimization Initiative

Announced in March of 2016, the 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:

  1. Data Center Optimization
  2. Cost Savings and Avoidance
  3. Closing Data Centers

Get the details about the DCOI requirements and a checklist to use in your DCIM selection process.

Achieving Optimization & Consolidation

Nlyte’s Asset Lifecycle Management provides a comprehensive and real-time inventory of all assets in your data center. Combined with Capacity Planning, you will be able to evaluate current and historical usage and consumption patterns to yield important insight on where/when/how to re-allocate and re-align data center capacity. This moves you towards the DCOI’s Facilities Utilization goals of reducing gross floor area (GFA) and rack count by at least 80% by 2018.

Next, Nlyte Energy Optimizer allows you to monitor and track your energy consumption to meet the Energy Metering and PUE portions of DCOI metrics. Specifically, our PowerView feature provides you with enhanced power chain analysis to conduct “what-if” simulation at a whole new level and obtain fast, accurate and easy insight into power capacity and availability. This is an indispensable weapon in your arsenal to achieve the formidable challenge of 100% energy metering and PUE of less than 1.5 by 2018.

The 5 DCOI Optimization Metrics – all supported by Nlyte

  1. PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness)
  2. Energy Metering
  3. Virtualization
  4. Server Utilization & Automated Monitoring
  5. Facilities Utilization
