DCOI for Dummies describes what the US Federal DCOI (Data Center Optimization Initiative) is and what data center professionals need to do to comply with the requirements. It also outlines the characteristics you should look for when evaluating the offerings of vendors who want to assist you in meeting the goals set out by the DCOI.
