Green Computing

Green Computing is the study and practice of using computing resources efficiently. Typically, green computing systems or products take into account the so-called triple bottom line of people, planet, profit. This differs somewhat from traditional or standard business practices that focus mainly on the economic viability of a computing solution. These focuses are similar to those of green chemistry; reduction of the use of hazardous materials such as lead at the manufacturing and recycling stages, maximized energy efficiency during the product's lifetime, and recyclability or biodegradability of both a defunct product and of any factory waste.

White Paper Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

White Paper Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
Today's IT executives are not only expected to create and maintain high-availability IT environments, but they are also expected to implement green initiatives to satisfy customers, analysts, and government agencies that are worried about the impact of modern, energy-thirsty data centers on the environment. Is such a dual mandate reasonable? Can companies be expected to maintain service levels and reduce their carbon footprints at the same time? The White Paper offers a description of the different types of services available to improved energy efficiency data center design and a prescription for successful implementation.

White Paper Published By: HP Data Center     Published Date: Feb 18, 2009
The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.

This white paper describes an energy audit tool which can lead to significant decreases in the costs of running a data center.  Thermal Zone Mapping (TZM) is a visualization tool developed to present in graphical format high level thermal metrics developed by HP and targeted for use as part of the HP Data Center Thermal Assessment service. This tool uses data generated from computer models of the data center and generates metrics, which are then post-processed and visualized in the three-dimensional data center space.

"Power and Cooling", a video presentation, uses vivid computer modeling to illustrate why traditional trial-and-error approaches are inadequate for effective thermal management . Data center cooling costs now account for half of all power-related outlays. And they continue to soar. But cutting these costs - while at the same time improving availability and capacity - is achievable. The trick is knowing how.
