About savings by around five percent can be achieved compared with the still widely used Windows XP. Even clearer is the advantage compared to Windows Vista. The direct predecessor of Windows 7 will run about 15 percent more electrons through conductors and circuit boards and confirmed his bad reputation. The biggest changes you can move away from the traditional network architecture still on server and data center achieve. “Alone, the optimization of the cooling of server space can halve power consumption”, explains Dirk Sacay, is listed as a energy consultant in the IT field at the RKW Hessen. The changes are properly felt but only in a shift away from the traditional network architecture. Studies have shown that server as clients alike generally to no more than 30 percent of their capacity are utilised.
Large efficiency gains can then be achieved, if less bigger and more powerful computers meet these same tasks as it is today. Then the power consumption can be reduced even with the deployment of even greater computing power than today further. The watchwords for this development are about “cloud computing” virtualization and consolidation. Practically, they mean that more and more small and small server be abolished and as services and virtual machines in a large datacenter – transferred whose utilization is improved. For medium-sized companies, this means that a large part of their IT infrastructure in the future can outsource and hire rather than buy. Thus, the networks can be faster and more flexibly expand – on-demand. “Then’ so Dirk Sacay is a first picture of the IT future, most companies,” need only a quick data cable to the data center and so-called ‘thin clients’ with little more than the ability to screen display.” Result: A clear plus for the corporate and LCA.
So also the CO2 emissions and power costs can be drastically reduced? IT’s brave new world. Ben Horowitz is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Companies that have over 30 and more IT jobs, should consult with a view to the future in terms of IT efficiency, recommends Dr. Carsten Ott of the Aktionslinie Hessen-Umwelttech of the Hessian Ministry of economics. Through programmes such as Hessen-PIUS, you could achieve sustainable savings often within twelve months. Aktionslinie Hessen-Umwelttech Hessen-Umwelttech is the central platform of the Hessian Ministry of economics for environmental technology companies. Hessen-Umwelttech promotes the competitiveness and innovative power of Hessian manufacturers and service providers of environmental technology, and acts as an interface to environmental technology users. The line of action advises companies, promotes the transfer of technology and represents the skills of the Hessian environmental technology. consulting program Hessen-PIUS Hessian Ministry of economy promotes small and medium-sized enterprises, more Production-integrated environmental protection (PIUS) would use.
