Green Initiatives and Energy Conservation in a Modern Atlanta Datacenter
April 23, 2009
The "Green Initiative" is not just a focus at datacenters around the country - it is THE focus, with energy efficiency being the central element from which most conservation strategy stems from. Power needs of the modern datacenter are ever-increasing as is the skyrocketing cost of energy, so finding ways to cut operating costs becomes an obvious priority. The environmental aspects of improving energy efficiency started out as a welcome, but secondary, benefit after the priority of reducing datacenter overhead.
