DOCI is about physical data center opimization, not about network or
service availability.

DCOI metrics:
- Energy metering
- Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)
- Virtualization
- Server Utilization & Automated Monitoring
- Facility Utilization

Why do you have two circuits with only 40% utilization. The auditor says
that's waste, and you only need one circuit at 80% utilization for half
the cost.
