We very pleased to announce that we've been selected to appear on the G-Cloud providing services under Lot 3, SaaS with our PC Power Monitoring & Management Software suite and Data Centre Infrastructure Management products and under Lot 4 Specialist Cloud Services with our Pre-EUCoC, BCS Pre-CEEDA and Web Useability Services delivered with our partners SANfire IA, their website can be found here SANFire IA.
We are particularly pleased that our EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres pre-assessment service is available on the G-Cloud as we are seeking to assist the HMG Green Delivery Unit under the "Greening Government ICT Strategy to help them achieve their target to have all central government, local government and other public sector organisations to be participants to the code by April 2014 and by appearing on the G-Cloud this process can be streamlined and made very easy for organisations to engage with us.
We can also go one step further with the BCS CEEDA programme, which is also available on the G-Cloud.
Previous blog posts detail the difference between the EUCOC and BCS CEEDA and you can trawl through the blog to find them, however in essence the EUCoC is a commitment to implement the 110 best practices within 3 years whilst a BCS CEEDA is an actual external assessment to 43 of the best practices. Our service is to provide guidance and assistance to organisations to achieve the highest BCS CEEDA award possible and we do this by checking the physical infrastructure practices and to provide the documentary evidence that the BCS CEEDA assessor will be looking for as a part of his remit.

In other news, we've been invited to speak at the ICT4 Sustainability event at the QE2 Conference centre in London on the 13th November on the EUCoC and CEEDA programme, more info here ICT4 Sustainability
We'll also be at the DCD London event at the Excel Centre in the London Docklands on the 14th & 15th speaking about CEEDA and appearing on a panel discussion, more info here

We also have, later today a webinar to discuss our (BCS DCSG) proposed amendments to the GHG Protocol ICT Sector guidance on the Cloud and Data Centre chapters.

We'll post something soon about our thoughts on Hurricane Sandy and the impact its had on the NE USA and in particular their Data Centres, but we'll wait until the air has cleared as it were.

We'll also be doing 3 JISC/Concurrent Thinking/Defra EUCoC events in London, Birmingham and Leeds during the week commencing 19th November, so all in all a very busy month.

We also have a CEEDA assessment before Christmas for a major global co-location provider which hopefully will cascade around to all their other sites, they obviously recognise the value of an external energy efficiency assessment when they see one.

That's it for now, as usual we'll keep everybody updated via our social media feeds @carbon3it and @greenit_carbon3it, our facebook and linked in pages.
