The State of Energy Consumption in the Modern Data Center
Data centers are one of the fastest-growing global consumers of electricity. In the United States alone an estimated 12 million computer servers are currently occupying data center space. With the advent of virtualization, progress has been made in reducing physical data center energy use, but research has revealed that many resources are still routinely wasted, primarily due to server underutilization.
In this e-book, we examine the costs of server underutilization on both the environment and business, and how increasing server utilization is key to reducing data center energy consumption and global business costs.
