Transcript of Green IT

Based on the article "Harnessing Green
IT: Principles and Practices"
by Sam Murugesan Green Computing It is defined as the study and practice of: Manufacturing Using Adopting a holistic approach to greening IT is our responsibility toward creating a more sustaining environment.
-Sam Murugesan Designing And disposing of computers, servers and other subsystems... ...efficiently and effectively with minimal or no effect on the environment. Let's hear some facts Each PC in use generates about a TON of carbon dioxide every year. And that's only for one computer, folks The Green IT initiative is simply
focused on "greening" every
aspect of IT. Oh yeah? What's
in it for me? The federal government, could save
around $960 million over five years by
adopting green technologies. Some examples of these
green technologies:

Server Consolidation
Dynamic Smart Cooling Virtualization This process simulates computer
software (or hardware) upon
which other software can run.
(It creates a virtual computer). Server Consolidation This reduces the number of servers or server locations that an organization needs by providing an efficient usage of computer server resources. (very similar to virtualization) Dynamic Smart Cooling This technology is designed to provide more precise targeting of air-conditioning in response to changes in server temperatures. Seems simple enough. Now let's
have another look at that number... Let's look back at the four paths
of the Green IT initiative:

Green design

Green manufacturing

Green use

Green disposal A green design is an essential starting point for Green IT.

This includes efficient cooling systems and environmentally sound components. This is all about making all the components safe for the environment and manufacturing them in such a way that there is minimal to no effect on the environment.

For example: "greening" the factories in which computers are manufactured. Design Manufacturing Use This is aimed at reducing energy
consumption of computers or any
other information systems. Disposal The three R's:
Reuse - donate or use separate components

Refurbish - upgrade computer, build your own

Recycle - properly dispose of unwanted computers/components OUT! No more "out with the old"! Finally, how can you take
part in this initiative? Simple everyday things can help
save the most energy, such as:

turning off your computer monitor/computer when not in use
enabling power management features on your computer
using recycled paper in your printer Replace old parts and buy more energy efficient components, such as:

Replace CRT monitor with LCD
Buy energy efficient computers
Buy necessary hardware that is appropriate for its job (no unnecessary memory etc.) You can save up to 10% on your energy bill by simply unplugging devices from your computer when they aren't charging! It's time to
do our part! Thank you for watching my presentation! or Green IT By: Scott Larter http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~dtipper/2011/GreenPaper.pdf
