This webcast will explore how Red Hat has and continues to contribute to the green IT movement. While there are many ways of going green, a director of solutions architects at Red Hat, will discuss four of them, UNIX-to-Linux migration facilitated green computing before the term Going Green was popular. As customers migrated from RISC systems to industry-standard systems running Linux, they were able to achieve higher performance with less hardware and lower power consumption. Power management technologies, emerging improvements, which include, RHEL 5.3 and Nehalem, the tickles kernel, improved drivers, and improved coding techniques, will also be discussed. Virtualization provides many benefits to a green IT strategy, from server consolidation to the increased benefits of Red Hat Enterprise virtualizations system scheduler.
