Data Center Equipment
Over the course of the past decade, the biggest advancements in data center energy efficiency have taken place in the data center infrastructure. By and large, IT equipment has not been a focus for energy savings by data center operators, although it represents nearly two-thirds of the energy consumption!
The good news is that there is an easy way to increase the energy savings from your IT Equipment: Buy ENERGY STAR. For example, an ENERGY STAR certified server consumes 30% less energy than a standard server, saving on average over 650 kWh/year, when power management is enabled. In addition, with the increased productivity of your servers, there may be fewer products that need to be purchased, leading to lower licensing and other support fees.
