The Green and Virtual Data Center Excerpt
A green and virtual data center relies on the efficient usage of underlying physical resources to achieve energy savings. Green servers, storage, and networks deliver the performance, availability, and responsiveness for all types of application needs and requirements.
This excerpt, from "The Green and Virtual Data Center," provides strategies and blueprints for enabling and deploying environmentally friendly next-generation data centers. Addressing multiple technology domains and disciplines, it looks at design and implementation tradeoffs using various best practices and technologies to sustain application and business growth while maximizing resources, such as power, cooling, floor space, storage, server performance, and network capacity.
In this book, coverage shows how to make server and storage virtualization energy efficient and still be able to support a diversity of high-performance applications without degrading application quality of service or service level commitments. "The Green and Virtual Data Center" book also explores performance and capacity planning in a virtual environment that supports resource-demanding applications, such as OLTP and streaming media.
