This paper intends to raise awareness about possibilities of energy and cost savings in data centers. Situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is analyzed through results of the survey from the IT area. There is a hypothetical estimation of cost saving of USD 500,000 for period of three years, for 500 servers in 60 local data centers. This should be good motivation for system administrators to consider server virtualization as a future strategy for data centers.
