Gartner's Green Guidance

Gartner has released a list of 11 ways to save electricity in the datacenter. To get the full report, you'll have to buy it or subscribe to a Gartner service. I'll try to save you a few bucks by summarizing the findings.

First, many datacenters are actually colder than they need to be, so turn down the A/C. There are also holes in raised floors than can be plugged so the hot air underneath doesn't escape.

While thinking about these floors, consider cleaning up the tangle of cables that disrupt air flow. Finally, you can separate cold zones from hot, cooling only what really needs cooling.
