Panel Title and Abstract:

A Comprehensive Approach to Reducing Data Center Energy Consumption  

The data center is a common starting point for most green IT initiatives. Data centers not only consume a tremendous amount of energy, but are riddled with IT inefficiencies. Take, for example, the average server environment where 30% are of servers are "dead" -- consuming energy, but performing no useful work. And data center managers have ample opportunity to improve efficiencies across other IT systems, like storage and networks, and facilities equipment, like power distribution and cooling. This session will help data center managers develop a comprehensive green data center framework across their server, storage, network and facilities assets to deliver financial and environmental savings.
