The greening of IT; how companies can make a difference for the environment.

Lamb, John.

IBM Press


317 pages




In this work for business and IT leaders, Lamb (IBM Global Business Services) describes new products, services, and best practices for reducing data center energy consumption by an average of 40%, and shows how to incorporate green computing throughout the IT infrastructure. He discusses regulations, energy cost shifts, and utility rate incentives that can help companies move toward green IT. Other topics are cooling equipment for data centers, and collaboration among businesses, vendors, and governments. Case studies of utilities, universities, and companies of all sizes from around the world are included. About 70 pages of appendices offer checklists, a comparison of different power- generation methods, and notes on worldwide electricity costs for IT.
