  • 1. Need to develop Green DatacentersWith the growing expenses of power and an increased uncertainty in power accessibility, energy conversiontoday is a major issue for data centers. With the increase in computing power demand to satisfy crucialmission application as well as the advent of virtualization created drastic impacts on server density, makingthe requirement for an efficient energy management plan even more essential today. When there is an in-depth knowledge of energy consumption attained through real-time monitoring within the data center,administrators feel safer of being able to make improved and energy conscious decisions. All these facts, hadled to the need for Green Datacenters today.Several companies hosting digital marketplaces and social networks present at the Green Grid Forum 2012shared their initiatives for establishing green datacenters. The datacenters today consume more than 2percent of the total electricity. It has been estimated that almost half of US’s electricity is generated byburning coal. The increasing datacenter energy usage will contribute to an ever increasing percentage ofgreenhouse has emissions unless we are able to decouple the expansion of data storage and processing fromfossil fuel pollution.Leading information security brands today have come up with a phased methodology to offer GreenDatacenter solutions that are cost efficient in nature. This apart, they offer sustainability to businessoperations and guarantees a healthy bottom-line for an organization. The phases that are put to use are:- Assessment PhaseThis phase helps in setting up baseline of energy usage and carbon footprint of the present environmentusing an assessment framework which is also utilized to audit the present environment. This process isfollowed by Gap analysis and Feasibility study for identifying transformational initiatives, assess expensestructure and conduct impact analysis. Planning and Design PhaseThis phase assists in setting up a detailed route map for certain Green IT initiatives like DC optimization,procurement, financial, recycling and resource planning. Implementation PhaseThis phase works towards selecting and implementing certain technologies datacenter transformationinitiatives such as datacenter consolidation, virtualization, power and cooling management and ITinfrastructure management. This phase also helps an organization to attain LEED certificate.The amount of data the world processes and stores will go on expanding fast. EMC, an esteemed informationinfrastructure solutions enterprise predicts that the amount of global data will expand to approximately 35zettabytes by 2020. If there is no focus given on datacenter efficiency and renewable power usage, then theclimatic impact of datacenters will also expand exponentially. To aid this situation, eminent IT solutionproviders are offering Green Datacenters methods to their clients and end users.Related links: Datacenter virtualization, Managed network services
