The Site Analysis Tool is aimed at helping businesses and data center managers to quickly analyze and compare the impact of location and design on the performance of their data centers. This tool provides access to the results of over 1600 simulation years of data processed using Romonet's patented Data Center Analytics technology.
The tool enables users to compare theÂ energy, PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness), energy-costÂ andÂ CO2 performanceÂ of each design across many different climates in Europe and North America. Currently Romonetâs tool covers 69 locations in the US and 22 locations in Europe and the company plans to continue adding locations as its data grows.
Users can either selectÂ a specific locationÂ and see how the four data center types compare in performance, or they can selectÂ a specific data center typeÂ to see how it performs across different geographical and climate regions. To ensure the simulation is as accurate as possible, users can also select the estimated IT load of the data center.
Users can also download a PUE surface plot that shows the expected PUE for all load points and external climate conditions. Romonetâs PUE surface plots are one of the most industry recognised visual outputs.

News: Further climate locations and annual water consumptionÂ will be added (as a newÂ metric) during July and August.
