There are strong arguments for and against the dire predictions of global warming, yet one fact is undeniable - over the past 10 to 20 years, the inhabitants of Earth are collectively consuming more energy at a faster rate than ever before. No where is this more apparent than in the data center where power consumption has doubled in the past five years and is expected to rise at a steeper rate of 76% from 2005 to 2010. Yet there are many other ways to reduce power and cooling costs in the data center, ways that are far simpler and less expensive to implement. By using products that are designed and manufactured to support passive airflow, cooling and power requirements will be reduced. A well planned infrastructure will make a tremendous difference in the energy you can save.
