Executive Summary

Power consumption is the biggest area of concern in the server domain. Between 2000 and 2005, server electricity use more than doubled, growing at a rate of 14 percent each year. The power consumption cost of servers is rapidly growing and management costs have gone higher forcing IDC to identify power management as the critical need of the hour. By 2007, Gartner had predicted that power and cooling spending will exceed server spending. By 2008, 50% of all data centers will have insufficient power and cooling capacity to meet the demand of high density equipment. Power and cooling costs will increase to more than one-third of the total IT budget
