What, if any, metrics are software-as-a-service and storage-as-a-service vendors providing when it comes to electrical consumption? My company's "green" policies have some guidelines about our vendors, but outsourced IT seems to be a black box right now. Some companies, particularly storage providers, have been more forthcoming than others, but I'm wondering if others have run into the same problem, and whether your vendors are willing to share how much electricity your accounts are using?
