Green IT is a hot topic for most companies today. Certain common points are true for everybody, regardless whether you are running large datacenters or a single small business server: optimizing your operations and IT environment will help you to become "greener" and save money at the same time. Learn and watch demos showing how System Center together with the Windows OS helps you to save energy & money by:
Modeling the hardware utilization of your environment for core products like Exchange, SharePoint or SC Operations Manager Creating an overview of your IT environment and listing their energy saving capabilities realizing the Dynamic IT vision by combining the power of System Center products together with the enhanced scripting technologies of Windows PowerShell
MMS is a sold out event, so it will be interesting what % of the people attend Frank's talk ouf of all the competing breakouts at his time. Frank has had dozens of conversations with European customers on the subject of a Green Data Center.
If some of you are interested in this topic add comments to this blog entry and I can follow up Frank to see if I can extract some of his presentation. Frank owes me one small favor as I loaned him a watt measuring device to demo the power consumption.
