IT Efficiency

Much of the "green" in green IT is simply the result of practical bottom-line management. Principles of good IT stewardship, such as efficient utilization, reduced energy use and greater reliability, can improve financial performance at the same time as they improve environmental performance.

Our IT efficiency professionals can help you in your efforts to:

  • Assess your current IT environmental footprint and identify opportunities to reduce operating costs and environmental impacts
  • Consolidate the number of physical IT components (e.g., data centers and servers) to lower energy consumption and reduce IT’s carbon footprint
  • Implement a green IT waste management program that encompasses in-house and manufacturer recycling, hardware end-of-life strategies, and packaging minimization
  • Monitor IT energy use through the use of emissions tracking and energy management software
  • Assess existing storage and server strategies to determine where opportunities exist to decrease the energy footprint
  • Assess cost- and energy-efficient methods of architecting recoverability and availability into the IT environment
  • Design strategies and methods for migrating backup solutions from tape-based storage to disk-based storage (tape-based solutions are associated with higher emissions due to the logistics associated with transporting tapes)
  • Design virtualization solutions to reduce the complexity of restoration and the management of recovery environments
