With Earth Day upon us, a lot of thoughts naturally turn to all the issues associated with green IT. But a recent Gabriel Consulting Group survey of close to 200 data center managers and staff responsible for X86-class servers suggests that IT organizations still consider power consumption secondary to performance.
