Companies are facing energy constraints, increased data demands, and rising power costs. Implementing green strategies, such as a green data center, can provide a competitive edge while benefiting the environment for the following reasons:

  • Energy efficiency is a growing part of business efficiency.
  • A green data center can meet growing data volume and increasing processing demand while managing escalating resource costs.
  • An efficient, green data center can help your company reduce costs and comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
  • Green initiatives benefit your brand image, increase positive public opinion, and improve your bottom line.

This IBM® Redbooks® Point-of-View publication explains how your organization can implement a green IT approach to data center efficiency.
