Straight Talking - IT Must Be Called to Account Over Emissions
Despite their best intentions, many organisations are overlooking the real environmental impact of IT operations. That's down to a major breakdown in communications between the board and IT management. The data centre is arguably the best place to control and secure IT resources. Powering and cooling of IT equipment can be done more efficiently in a data centre than in an uncontrolled environment. Quocirca interviewed more than 300 US, UK and other European data centre decision makers - IT directors or CIOs, IT managers and data centre managers. The research focused on how companies are coping with complexity in the data centre, how they are approaching the issues of space and power restrictions and the barriers to adopting best practice in power reduction.
