The Governance of Green IT
The economy and environment have combined to create quite a challenge. On one hand, there is a push to reduce capital investment and operating expenses. On the other, organizations are implementing green strategies to reduce the environmental impacts. Within this context, information technology is struggling to provide services that support the organization. Today's high-performance high-density computer systems are requiring power and cooling densities that hitherto were unheard of. As a result, not only are some data center facilities challenged to provide the power and cooling needed, but in some cases, the power utility can't even provide additional power without improving the power grid and/or developing additional generation facilities. If data center power and cooling issues aren't addressed, IT may find itself constrained and unable to add servers or use newer technology in new and revised services that enable the business. The Green IT process can help IT implement the necessary governance and processes to address these risks. This book provides an overview so IT can do just that.
