Cover Image

Energy-efficient computing is a high priority for businesses and organizations seeking to control costs and greenhouse emissions. One opportunity for an organization to reduce power usage is to implement an energy-efficient server infrastructure that facilitates management and allocation of power to computing resources as needed.


Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, like its predecessor Windows Server 2008, has been designed with energy efficiency in mind. Recent tests found that Windows Server 2008 R2 improved power efficiency by up to 18 percent over Windows Server 2003, out of the box.


Windows Server 2008 R2 empowers you to:

  • Save power with the new processor power management engine and default settings
  • Reduce storage power consumption
  • Save money with enhanced power metering and budgeting capabilities
  • Increase server utilization and power efficiency through virtualization
