Energy Efficiency Survey by Cassatt

Got a copy of the Cassatt Energy Efficiency Survey.  Highlights are as follows:

From the responses we received from IT professionals and facilities managers we learned several interesting facts:

  • 63% of you are either working on a data center energy-efficiency project now or expect to within the next year
  • 43% of you have a data center that is within 25% of its maximum power capacity
  • 61% of you are aware that the EPA recommends turning off idle servers to save energy, but over 30% say you don’t know how many servers are idle at any given time
  • Server power management software is the energy saving strategy that large companies selected most frequently as their next step for the future (29%)
