While corporations are not generally in the “business” of being green, environmentally sustainable strategies can be an effective way to achieve financial ends. With the recent broad adoption of the economics of environmentalism into the profit strategy of leading organizations, IT has a strategic opportunity to show “green” business value. Green IT in particular will grow, as companies adopt technologies with rapid payback times, whether they are power management systems, energy-efficient computers and servers, or facilities management technologies for offices and data centers. Moreover, green IT is becoming far more necessary not just to achieve corporate environmental goals, but as a way to cut down significantly on energy costs from data centers and company computer networks.
Key trends impacting the green IT & virtualization market
- Consolidation is one of the most prominent trends in the virtualization market, as the leading ICT vendors are trying to acquire or enhance their virtualization capabilities by engaging in mergers and acquisitions activities.
- Facing a challenge to strengthen their IT requirements with reduced budgets, IT managers across the globe are inclined to implement server virtualization technologies, to decrease their spending on IT hardware and ensure the optimum utilization of the IT resources available.
- To enhance the benefits of virtualization, resources under virtualized infrastructure share common storage using storage area networks (SANs). However, the use of many virtual servers on limited storage devices may lead to a scarcity of storage space, creating challenges for storage administrators.
