This expert handbook will help guide you through the decision-making process of “greening the data center”. Readers will learn how these methods—along with others—help to provide a smaller footprint while still allowing for higher power density.

  • CW Buyers Guide: Green IT

     

    With IT such a large energy drain for many organisations, firms that cut IT power consumption will reap big benefits.

     

    Going green means that computer room air conditioners and chillers are no longer required in the datacentre, potentially slashing energy costs by up to 50% and dramatically lowering the facility’s carbon footprint.

     

    Since April 2010, energy intensive organisations have been under further pressure to lower their carbon output.

     

    This six-page Buyer’s Guide to Green IT helps CIOs and senior IT professionals to identify the issues around going green and explains the pros and cons of using third-party facilities to run IT services.
