The ROI of Green IT and Data Center Management Strategy

Gartner, Inc. has provided advice on the immediate issues over the next two years that will provide a quick return on investment, as well as medium-term (five years) and long-term (which Gartner admits are esoteric and may never become mainstream) green IT issues.

Andrea Di Maio, vice-president and analyst at Gartner, said although green IT is an important theme for many industries, government organizations will be more exposed to it as they play key roles in regulating and supervising the environmental impact of IT.

Two Year ROI for Data Centers

  • Modern data center facility design concepts
  • Advanced data center cooling technologies
  • Virtualization technologies for server consolidation
  • Processor design and server efficiency
  • Energy management for the office environment
  • Combined heat and power for offices and data centers
