Data continues to grow at an astounding pace? As a result, data center space is becoming more scarce, as more arrays are acquired to store all of this data. Along with this data taking up space, it is also utilizing a great deal of power and cooling. In fact, the average data center in the U.S. uses approximately 34,000 kW of electricity each year, costing $180,000 in annual energy costs. As Infinidat set out to revolutionize the storage industry, one of our goals was to help consumers of storage build a more sustainable infrastructure that would be not only better for the environment, but also help them to save money as well. All of our patents come together to form InfiniBox, a storage solution that does just this.
Ensuring the reliability and efficiency of your data center operations requires a strategic partner that is qualified to minimize energy usage, reduce costs, and optimize space utilization, helping you meet critical business initiatives.

Data Centers consume more energy than any other environment in most companies. This paper presents a holistic approach that addresses Green IT within the broader context of increasing business service efficiency and reducing the cost of IT.
Increase utilization, decrease energy costs with data center virtualization In the past, IT departments have responded to demands for new services and better performance by adding more hardware, resulting in underutilized technology silos and server sprawl. Today, many organizations are turning to virtualization technologies that facilitate consolidation and increased utilization. In short, virtualization brings the ability to pool, share and dynamically reallocate data center resources – and helps fulfill the promise of higher utilization and lower energy consumption and lower costs.Join us and learn why HP is well prepared to help you assess and address your needs. Find out what key virtualization partners -- such as VMware, Microsoft and Citrix – bring to the table and how HP can help you leverage their technology and expertise.
The modern data center has to keep pace with business growth, without outgrowing its physical space. It must meet customer demands, while containing operating costs. The solution lies in a scalable, modular data center-turnkey, high-density, energy-efficient and able to be deployed quickly. Discover how a number of industries have put this concept to work to provide better service and cut costs.

By using intelligent and scalable platforms, your organization can improve resource consumption, cloud utilization and more. Solid data center management platforms help empower your business and data center to consume less energy and trim infrastructure costs.
Energy consumption can add up to 40% of a typical data center's annual budget. Discover how IBM is finding new ways to reduce server-room energy needs and heat output without compromising reliability and availability with technologies such as X-Architecture, BladeCenter Servers and virtualization. IBM executives outline IBM's industry-leading energy-innovation solutions that can help your business save costs and prepare for the future in these short video presentations.
As energy costs rise, your data center is being taxed and your business is at stake. CIOs are realizing they need to redesign and build energy-efficient data centers. This article simplifies that complex task. It explains how to pinpoint your biggest energy costs and match hardware, software and facilities options so you can create a truly green data center.
Studies show that data centers are doubling their total power consumption every 5 years. But have most data centers optimized their energy consumption with the current available solutions? Platform Computing knows there is room in data centers to reduce energy costs by 10-30%. This paper describes strategies for dynamically managing the energy consumption to achieve similar results.
