VMblog Video Q&A: Intel GM Jeff Klaus Discusses the Future of the Green Data Center

Intel GM for Data Center Solutions, Jeff Klaus, provides his expertise in this video discussion with VMblog, explaining how green initiatives are changing the way data centers operate.

Jeff says there are actionable steps and insights data center operators should consider when rethinking their data center strategies with a green-mindset, including what some large companies are already doing to decrease their footprint, such as:

  • Boosting airflow management can reduce energy consumption by 40%
  • Exploring and implementing innovative cooling technologies can use up to 95% less energy
  • Raising internal temperatures can save 60% on cooling costs

Most data center operators don't realize that replacing an old server with a design that uses the latest technology saves enough electricity to avoid the equivalent of 1 ton of carbon emissions and saves up to $480 dollars in its lifecycle - keep in mind a data center can have thousands of servers, quickly amounting to a ton of savings.
