The recent adoption of virtualization technologies lowers the amount of hardware required and reduces power consumption to some extent. But it also raises management complexity since there is no longer a permanent and exclusive relationship between physical resources and the software that runs on it. If you then choose to implement a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) on top of that, the increase in complexity multiplies.

How do solid-state drives really match up to hard disk drives? This Infographic illustrates a side-by-side comparison that quantifies how the differences extend beyond cost per GB. See how SSD and HDDs stack up against each other with facts on reliability, capacity, latency, transfer rates, IOPS, and power consumption.
Kemp Technologies’ LoadMaster Application Delivery Controller (ADC) and Server Load Balancer (SLB) appliances are low energy consumers. Reducing energy use at the point of consumption, LoadMaster provides benefits to other areas by reducing load on power and cooling facilities, which in turn reduce their own energy use.
When people think of global warming and environmental damage caused by inefficient power consumption, computing may not instantly spring to mind as a culprit, but the computing industry takes a toll on the environment. Learn more about how your company can address both environmental and business initiatives in this white paper.

Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and -XR Series Switches earned the Miercom Certified Green Award for saving over 50% in annual energy operating costs compared to the industry average. The switches were evaluated in accordance with the Miercom Certified Green Testing Methodology. Test results show the benefits of Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and -XR Series Switches.
Cisco’s Catalyst WS-C2960X-48TD-L and WS-C2960XR-48TD-I Gigabit Ethernet switches were evaluated by Miercom under the Certified Green program for power consumption and energy Using a 1518-byte frame size with 100% Layer 2 traffic load, testing showed both switches to be 55% more efficient in power consumption, measured in Watts/ Gbps, than the Industry Average efficiency. Overall environmental impact and business-enabling green benefits of the Layer 2 and Layer 3 switches were also analyzed.

Since the SQL Access Group created the Call Level Interface, ODBC has become the most ubiquitous method for connecting to relational database sources. ODBC was developed to allow programmers to access relational data in a uniform manner, regardless of the database backend. ODBC translates those generic commands into the specific esoteric commands of the database backend, so the quality of the driver directly determines the performance of the database connectivity layer.

University of East Anglia wished to create a “green” HPC resource, increase compute power and support research across multiple operating systems. Platform HPC increased compute power from 9 to 21.5 teraflops, cut power consumption rates and costs and provided flexible, responsive support.
Power distribution is facilitated through different pieces of equipment that take the power conditioned by your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and send it to your IT equipment . Power distribution solutions can manage and even control energy consumption in smaller environments as well as large data center applications . Distributing power efficiently results in reduced operating costs and increased reliability.
Integrate facilities and IT. Realize the value of the green data center.As data center costs continue to rise, green is the word of the day. What it means is cost savings through consolidation and lower energy usage, as this white paper shows. See the role energy consumption plays in today’s data centers, and how IBM Tivoli® solutions can help optimize energy use.
The IBM Active Energy Manager is a unique software tool that gives you the detailed information you need to closely and accurately monitor power consumption in your data center. Watch this IBM demo to see the extensive capabilities of Active Energy Manager, from setting automatic caps on energy usage to tracking trends over any time period you specify.
VMware solutions help customers meet their energy saving goals by enabling safe consolidation of underutilized x86 desktops and servers onto less hardware, both through initial consolidation efforts and dynamically as computing requirements change. This white paper explains how VMware virtualization provides the foundation for dramatically more energy efficient IT environments.
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.
WebEx elected to pursue a course of investigation and analysis that required a granular picture of its application-centric hardware implementations and corresponding power usage profiles. To accomplish this, WebEx decided to retool their datacenters with intelligent power strips having the ability to remotely report power consumption.
