Click through for new ways to improve energy management in the data center.

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.

But a growing number of voices are starting to question whether software should play a greater role in the green effort. After all, software drives the functioning of hardware, and the more cleanly and efficiently it can get the job done, the less stress is placed on physical resources.

This slideshow highlights ways software can be used to improve overall data center energy use, helping both the company’s bottom line and the environment.
