Green Data Centers: "Break a Sweat"

HP LogoHere’s a great quote of the day from HP’s John Bennett, head of data center transformation solutions:

“Anyone walking into a data center should break a sweat, not have to wear a jacket.”

The idea of a toasty data center may send shivers down the backs of experienced data center managers, but the energy savings are worth it provided the hardware can take the heat (and that it’s expelled properly). Running a warmer, less cooling intensive data center is just one of many steps companies can take to save money on operating their IT infrastructure, but as ZDNet’s Heather Clancy reminds in the title of the post the above quote came from, it’s critical to “take one step at a time.”
