Data centers

EN 50600


The EN 50600-series issued by the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC) is the first transnational standard for the design, installation and operation of data centers in Europe with a holistic approach. In addition to the “General concepts” (requirements for the conduct of a business impact and risk analysis, definition of the functional elements and protection classes of the data center, definition of availability classes and granularity levels for the energy efficiency) it includes the subsection “Data center design” and the requirements for facilities and infrastructure at data center locations. Organizational requirements for the “operation” and “resource management and key performance indicators (KPIs)” are described in other parts of the standard.
