The Eco-Friendly Data Center
The pressure is on businesses all around the world to be more environmentally conscious and reduce their carbon footprints. Today, not only do storage infrastructure suppliers' manufacturing and service operations have to be eco-friendly, but the information technology that organizations use must also be green. With eco-friendly demands coming in the form of economic issues, government directives and public pressure, companies that fail to adapt their operations to address environmental issues face the prospect of incurring additional costs, losing business and damaging their corporate reputation. Regardless of the phase in the information lifecycle, corporations and organizations of all sizes and types are increasingly seeking eco-friendly storage management solutions to accommodate data growth and extend the life of their existing investments.
