Recommendation : 3. Adapt the use of technical equipment to needs
Are servers / routers turned off when not in use ?
Are shutdown procedures for unused servers in place?
The network infrastructure is at the heart of the architecture of data centers, redundancy and over-dimensioning mechanisms are widely deployed but used on an ad hoc basis. In the absence of need and when this does not impact the safety of the site, the excess equipment should be de-energized to reduce energy consumption and cooling needs.
Hosting technical documentation defines activation / desactiivation of resources depending on load
1 - Equipment which does not require permanent operation is systematically switched off and not put on standby.

Rule for assessing the level of compliance of the criterion
Formalized = 100 ; Planned = 75 ; Identified = 50 ; Ignored = 0 / 100
11 other criteria related to the recommendation: Adapt the use of technical equipment to needs
Is the size of the physical park in line with the number of virtual machines to be run ?
Is the allocated memory based on actual use ?
Is the number of CPU cores allocated based on actual use ?
Is the technical choice (shared, dedicated, clustered) optimised between the actual need and energy efficiency ?
Are unused cores disabled ?
Is the backup system incremental (disk optimization) ?
Is the use of containers over virtual machines preferred ?
Are Open Source solutions implemented when available ?
Is high availability designed in a modular fashion ?
Is provisioning / deprovisionning dynamic depending on the load ?
Do storage solutions reduce the number of components (for example: high density SSD media) ?
