  13. 13. Server Consolidation – Go Green! Through consolidation and virtualization of servers using VMware, City of Newburyport will drastically reduce their carbon footprint: Reduce energy costs by 80% Power down servers without affecting applications or users Green your datacenter while decreasing costs and improving service levels 13
  14. 14. Reduce Energy Costs Consolidate Servers - Consolidation of servers eliminates server sprawl and cuts maintenance costs Reduce Energy Consumption - Every server virtualized saves 7000kWh of electricity annually or about $700 in energy costs Increase IT Capacity - Improve server utilization rates from 5-15% to 60-80%. Running fewer, highly utilized servers frees up space and power. Reduce CO2 Emissions – 4 tons of CO2 are eliminated for every server virtualized; the equivalent to taking 1.5 cars off the highway! 14
