  • If you think you know everything you need to know about data centers, put your knowledge to the test with the following quiz, which has been adapted from recent research published by Emerson Network Power and the Ponemon Institute. Before you start, you should know that this quiz—part of the "Emerson Data Center IQ Survey"—is a tough one. A total of 570 participating data center management and IT operations professionals scored an average of only 9.4 correct responses out of 25 quiz questions. (Just seven earned a perfect score.) We're featuring 11 of those questions here. And we're increasing the degree of difficulty here by not offering multiple choice answers, as Emerson and Ponemon did. We are providing percentages to show how well the original 570 participants did on each question. Topics run the gamut from data center terminology to the cost of outages to even the percentage of managers who have slept overnight in one of their data centers. The questions were compiled from research published by organizations such as the Uptime Institute, the Green Grid, Emerson Network Power's Data Center Users Group and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
