Many companies are now trying to save money by shrinking their data centers. "It's time to do more with less," says one IT manager. According to ComputerWorld, "IT managers have gotten to these more productive footprints by using virtualization, increasingly dense and multifunction hardware, alternative energy sources and modular design techniques. For their part, the savings accrue from lower energy bills, reduced property costs and less costly site and technology maintenance." 60% of data center costs come from power and cooling, so going green is actually a profitable endeavor.
Isn't it nice when doing the right thing saves money?
