Calculate data center envionmental cost per server : LUSENET : Service Level Management : One Thread


I realise this is slightly of topic.

We need to produce costs for additional servers to our client. This is a managed service. I was looking for websites, books or other than can help me out.

I need to find the best way to extract 'hidden' costs so that the customer end up with a price that is fair to both them and us. Prior to this we were simply charging for the additional server. Things that I have identified so far.

Network point (finite limit) Rack & Rack space Power % of UPS usage covering entire data centre Console switch for keyboard and VDU

Any help would be great
