Executive Summary

There are several compelling forces driving companies and government agencies to adopt a strategy for greening the data center. The recognition that there is a finite budget for operations and a finite amount of energy for power and cooling has made organizations aware that green IT is a practical way to optimize their data centers, reduce costs, consume less energy, and implement sustainable energy conservation measures to serve the public good. Before embarking on a green strategy, it is vital that organizations view the data center holistically, from its design, layout, and cooling architecture to the technology infrastructure, applications, and lighting. This type of assessment should be undertaken for all data centers that are considering options to reduce power usage and costs.
