Whether it’s due to the rising cost of energy, the ever-increasing demand for more processing power, the need to extend the life of your existing data centers or concern for the environment, energy management within the data center is now a top three concern for IT executives.


Usually, talk of improving energy efficiency in the data center revolves around virtualization, consolidation and improved management of power and cooling systems. This is only natural considering hardware systems are what actually consume the energy.
