Power and Cooling- Strategies to Help Cut Data Center Costs in 2011
While already on the lookout for ways to reduce costs, large enterprises are under increasing pressure to use less energy. Enterprise IT departments worldwide monitor data center energy consumption, casting a wary eye on metrics that show how servers use the watts they draw from the wall.
Indeed, inefficient or end-of-life servers can cost more to run than they are worth because they continue to draw power for cooling when they could easily be replaced with energy-efficient servers, or even retired and their workloads virtualized. This is not a new problem, but there are new solutions available to remedy this problem. Read this white paper to learn more.
