MetadataShow full item record
Selected literature published between 2004 and 2009 is mined for emerging trends and best practices regarding green IT and data centers. Environmental issues are becoming a serious industry concern, spurred by local and global initiatives (Kumar, 2009). Steps are identified for enterprise data center managers, in order to measure, manage, and improve power consumption efficiency within their facility. Data center energy efficiency gains save power, lower energy costs, and decrease overall corporate carbon footprint (Freeman, 2009).
