Lean and Green: Reducing IT Energy Drain for Business Gain
The benefits of going LEAN & GREEN are both environmental and financial, as efficiency gains reflect across power and operational costs, revenue, and future capital investment needs-when each server is truly pulling its weight, fewer are needed. As the survey results and executive dialogs in this report suggest, profitability and environmental responsibility are not conflicting goals but rather the only possible future strategy.
More and more, an organization's viability depends on how that entity addresses environmental sustainability.
The good news is that companies in the short term can lower their power usage and costs dramatically while increasing data center productivity. It's possible both to meet growing data storage needs and reduce server sprawl and power consumption. And as a data center shrinks, so does the environmental impact and the cost of maintaining it.
