The Green Grid said the case study highlights the benefits of using metrics such as the DCMM to guide design and purchase decisions in data centres.

"By all accounts, eBay's Project Mercury is an advanced data centre designed to optimise performance and energy use for eBay's specific workload profile, and one that also meets the five-year horizons defined by The Green Grid's DCMM," said Brad Brech, IBM representative and board member of The Green Grid.

"This facility is an example of what is possible by establishing and relying on industry best practices for achieving maximum energy efficiency and low environmental impact in data centres. The Green Grid is at the heart of this mission and the organisation will continue to look for new and innovative ways to promote resource efficiency and sustainability within the business computing ecosystem."

The full case study can be viewed here, and Dean Nelson of eBay will discuss the design and construction of Project Mercury further at The Green Grid Forum in San Jose on 6-7 March, 2012.
