Authors : PARTHA PRATIM RAY

Abstract :
Information Technology (IT) significantly impacts the environment throughout its life cycle. Most enterprises have not paid enoughattention to this until recently. ITís environmental impact can be significantly reduced by behavioral changes, as well as technologychanges. Given the relative energy and materials inefficiency of most IT infrastructures today, many green IT initiatives can be easily tackled at no incremental cost. The Green Grid - a non-profit trade organization of IT professionals is such an initiative, formed to initiate the issues of power and cooling in data centers, scattered world-wide. The Green Grid seeks to define best practices for optimizing the efficient consumption of power at IT equipment and facility levels, as well as the manner in which cooling is delivered at these levels hence, providing promising attitude in bringing down the environmental hazards, as well as proceeding to the new era of green computing. In this paper we review the various analytical aspects of The Green Grid upon the data centers and found green facts.
