Green initiatives are delivering disappointing ROIs for today's data centers

Since controlling power consumption represents a significant expenditure of time, money, and effort, data center managers need to consider all power reduction solutions at their disposal – from flywheels to eco-mode UPS systems to other efficient alternatives. 

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.
