Impact of efficiency, load characteristics, and location on energy and carbon allocation for IT users.
The purpose of the tool is to help data center operators assign carbon and energy costs to IT users.

The units of “average” server can then be apportioned to the IT users using a method of choice depending on the business model. This tool allows IT users to make smarter decisions regarding their total cost, as they consider options such as virtualization and server retirement.
