The idea of Green Computing or Data Center efficiency is nothing new. It's a topic I tackled in two separate articles: "Green IT: More Data, Less Juice" and "Green IT: The Gift that Keeps on Giving."
IDC doesn't think everyone gets it yet, and a recent report advices IT to develop closer bonds with facilities managers.
IDC kind of backs into the discussion by talking about the move toward virtualization, cloud computing and on-demand services. All these apparently demand faster deployment, which means the facilities folks have to get the data center ready with more capacity, more cooling and a solid overall plan for continued expansion.
CA paid for the report, as well it should -- it makes a bundle selling data center management software (DCIM).
IDC goes on to promote the concept of DCIM, claiming its makes data center more efficient and easier for IT to visualize.
