Rack Density Definitions
Rack Density Definition of Data Centre type Load (kW)
Low Standard 1 or 2 U servers with no blade chassis or high density computing. 1kW
Medium Mainly standard 1 or 2 U servers with some blade chassis or high density computers deployed. 2.5kW
High A mix of blade chassis or high density computing with some 1 or 2 U standard servers deployed. 5kW
Very High Blade chassis or high density computing 10kW
PUE Definitions
Efficiency PUE Definition
Inefficient 3 Old plant or poorly managed
Average 1.8 Mix of old & new plant with some use of best practise
Efficient 1.4 Well managed using best practise
State of the Art 1.2 Newly built with high efficiency plant

Where PUE is Power Usage Effectiveness; a standard metric devised by the Green Grid as a guide to Data Centre efficiency.
PUE = Total Facility Load (including IT Load, cooling/lighting and electrical systems) / IT Load.
