Ten Keysource employees have completed the ISEB Intermediate Certificate in EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres. The qualification has been achieved following a three-day intensive training course designed to provide essential knowledge about the terminology, structure and basic concepts of the Code, along with guidance on how best to implement and obtain participant status.
Mike West, Managing Director of Keysource commented: “As an official endorser, we have strongly supported the aims of the EU Code of Conduct, recognising the potential value of the initiative in terms of encouraging data centre efficiency. This qualification will ensure our team possesses the latest insight into the Code, so we are best placed to help our customers achieve participant status.”
The training course focuses on how best to deal with an organisation’s ‘Green’ strategy relating to the effective use of energy by software, ICT systems and support infrastructure (mechanical and electrical systems) within the data centre. It also provides understanding of the purpose of the EU Code of Conduct and how to apply its best practices at a high-level as well as helping to develop a common language around energy efficiency.
“Keysource has a commitment to energy reduction and technological innovation, working closely with our customers to support their need to improve data centre performance and drive down consumption,” concludes West.
