The seminar presents your executives a model for understanding data center energy consumption and points the way to strategies that can effectively curb it. It will demonstrate how a green tune-up can yield up to 50% savings. Most important, it will present four metrics for measuring data center greenness that can help your organization benchmark and control its energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
