In a recent blog post, Heather Clancy of ZDNet, talks about the recent Pike Research report that suggests that businesses can save $18.6B just from power management of PCs and Servers. Heather says:
When it comes down to it, power management really is about good management of an IT infrastructure. Period. It is just one more factor within all the various factors that an IT organization needs to consider. So maybe one of the reasons that I have heard less about this category lately is because more businesses now consider power management within their broader systems management agenda.
It’s awesome to see how much of 1E’s vision about saving money and the environment has now become common-place in business agendas. And, it’s great to finally see the server-side of power management getting more exposure. Hopefully, someday our vision in this area will become common-place, too.
