The Data Center Optimization Initiative memo M-16-19 was implemented for Q4 2016 and was replaced by M-19-19 in Q1 2019. Per M-19-19, as of Q1 2019 OMB no longer tracks closures and optimization metrics for non-tiered facilities. Additionally, agencies can classify tiered data centers as Key Mission Facilities (KMF), which are not subject to the same closure targets and may be exempted from optimization metrics.

Optimization Metrics

Agencies are encouraged to reduce application, system, and database inventories to essential enterprise levels by increasing the use of virtualization to enable pooling of storage, network and computer resources, and dynamic allocation on-demand. There are 4 key metrics, namely Virtualization, Energy Metering, Availability, and Underutilized Servers. More information can be found in the FAQ page.

Virtualization

Data center virtualization includes virtualizing physical servers in a data center facility, as well as storage, networks and other infrastructure devices and equipment. The DCOI metric is the number of servers and mainframes.

Energy Metering

Energy-use data can help you track long-term trends, benchmark progress and performance, perform diagnostics, and alert data center operators to impending or ongoing system failures.

Availability

Availability is reported in DCOI in terms of the planned hours of availability for each data center, as well as any unplanned outages for that data center over the reporting period, also measured in hours.

Underutilized Servers

Server utilization is the percentage of time during which the server is busy processing jobs during a simulation. The DCOI metric is measured by the number of underutilized production servers in each data center
