    The Green and Virtual Data Center Excerpt

    This book chapter 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.

    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.
