The crisis of mass power consumption in the corporate data center has come to a head. Power required to run data centers in the U.S. is estimated to be as much as that produced by five power plants in a year. Energy expenditures and requirements have doubled in the last five years, and computer disposal is the fastest growing type of waste in the world, according to top Stanford researchers and Greenpeace.
Energy consumption is a critical issue for IT organizations today. VMware virtualization gives you the power to right-size your IT infrastructure through server consolidation and dynamic load balancing across a pool of physical servers. Your IT organization can dramatically increase server utilization and reduce energy costs with VMware solutions.
