Implementing Energy-efficient Data Centers
Electricity costs are an increasing portion of the total cost of ownership (TCO) for data centers. But you can dramatically reduce the electrical consumption of typical data centers through appropriate design of both the network-critical physical infrastructure and IT architecture. Discover how to quantify electricity savings and learn about methods that can greatly reduce your data center electrical power consumption.

Electrical Efficiency Measurement for Data Centers
Data center electrical efficiency is rarely planned or managed. The unfortunate result is that most data centers waste substantial amounts of electricity. Today, it is both possible and prudent to plan and measure data center efficiency. In addition to reducing electrical consumption, efficiency improvements can bring higher IT power densities. Learn how to describe, measure, and evaluate data center efficiency.

Using Management Software to Tackle Your Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Which Scope Are You Talking About? » The TEC Blog
GHG emissions. Scope 2: Electricity Indirect GHG Emissions “Companies report the emissions from the generation of purchased electricity that is consumed in its owned or controlled equipment or operations as scope 2.” 2 By definition, scope 2 is not as complicated as the other two. To reduce scope 2 emissions, a company can either switch to lower GHG-emission electricity, reduce electricity consumption, or both. “For many companies, purchased electricity represents one of the largest sources of GHG

Lessons Learned on the Inca Trail
Peru, a country with a glorious past and an uncertain future, stands at the crossroads. The inability to attract significant trade or investment due to the crime and lack of democratic principles in the nation should be addressed as a matter of urgency. Peru can learn from countries that share the legacy of lost empires -- for example China -- and examine the principles of their ancestors to create a sustainable economic environment.
: homes still have no electricity or running water. Textiles are dyed by traditional means, fabrics woven using skills passed down from generation to generation. Paradoxically, the only evidence of the current millennium is in the ubiquity of the World Wide Web. Even the smallest village boasts an Internet Caf, where locals part with hard earned currency to communicate with other cultures. This thirst for knowledge is heightened by years of exclusion from global information. What are they learning from

: the form of wind-generated electricity. And it has purchased carbon offsets for the nonrenewable energy that it does use. Despite recent improvements in sourcing renewable energy, an even more sustainable approach would be to require less energy in the first place to drive down internal energy consumption. The company has set a priority on energy management in part, O Connor adds, because it makes financial sense. To us, the true definition of sustainability today is where environmental performance

Your Guide to OS Virtualization
Your Guide to OS Virtualization. Get Free Knowledge and Other Solutions Associated with Guide to OS Virtualization. Today’s information technology (IT) organizations are dealing with the consequences of exploding infrastructure complexity. At the root of the problem is uncontrolled server sprawl—servers provisioned to support a single application. Organizations that have implemented hardware virtualization have unwittingly created a new problem: operating system (OS) sprawl. IT organizations have to find ways to address this critical challenge—today.

Server electricity requirements alone can be a large cost component; a rack of servers can cost $17,000 a year in power.1 Hardware Cost Every year servers increase in capacity and computing power. As servers become more powerful it becomes increasingly dificult to maximize utilization of these powerful resources. IT organizations and application owners have become accustomed to dedicating a server to each application to ensure complete control over the application. In almost every case,

New Dimensions in EC and SCM Part 4: Using E-Procurement to Leverage Volume
A straightforward way to drive prices down and obtain increased supplier attention is to leverage total purchasing volume through Internet-based auctions. This part addresses the implications of using e-procurement to Leverage Volume, including leveraging volume through outsourcing.
: requirements for office supplies, electricity, MRO, or other business needs to a third party who bundles it together with the volume of other small and medium-sized companies to create enough volume leverage to attract superior pricing from suppliers. While consortium or group buying has been in existence for some time — your health insurance plan uses it to get better prices for doctor visits, pharmaceuticals, and other items, for example — bringing it to e-commerce is a new development.

Making Large UPS Systems More Efficient
Making Large UPS Systems More Efficient. Find Free System and Other Solutions to Define Your Performance In Relation To the UPS Systems. As energy resources become scarcer and more expensive, electrical efficiency is a more important performance factor in the specification and selection of large uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. There are three subtle but crucial factors that can affect the cost of operating a UPS system. Sadly, these factors are often unrecognized. Find out what they are, as well as common errors in evaluating UPS efficiency.
: business pays for the electricity that is measured by the utility meter This is the ultimate benchmark for the specification of any equipment. This is why manufacturers efficiency curve data should be based on realistic customer installations. Furthermore, the design of a data center power system should comprehend the efficiency impact over the entire power train and not just the UPS. A case in point is the removal of input filters to increase measured UPS efficiency. UPSs by their very nature produce

Because that system was so slow, call center employees used to enter a new customer record when somebody called. That way they could at least enter a complaint or request in the system. The company got rid of the legacy applications, but not the legacy data. Months after the migration the organization was still struggling resulting in
