IBM Project Big Green - One Year and Growing

IBM followed up today on its May 10, 2007 Project Big Green announcement with a update on what's happening in client data centers and with a slew of new solutions - from modular to enterprise-size approaches.

IBM's strategy is to help CIOs design and deploy energy efficient data centers while providing CFOs savings that can reduce energy bills.  Since last year's project launch, the company has helped more than 2,000 clients deliver hardware, software and services technologies that help them reduce data center energy consumption and cut energy costs by more than 40 percent, often with innovative, creative problem solving.

CNET reports in an article titled IBM goes modular in 'green' data centers that "Data centers around the world account for about 2 percent of all energy consumption and there is ample room for improvement, according to experts.  For example, virtualization software can consolidate multiple computing jobs onto fewer computers to cut energy use significantly."
