Energy is presenting organizations with significant financial challenges as data centers expand to meet business demands. It is estimated that if server energy consumption is not curtailed, energy costs could surpass hardware acquisition costs. Analyst firm IDC believes that by 2010 the cost of power could overtake the cost of hardware.1 Gartner Research has also noted that energy costs could soon represent more than half the cost of running a data center.2 Although the implementation of certain power saving strategies can be expensive; some however, can be implemented rather cost effectively. This paper demonstrates how a properly configured server can help the data center reduce its server acquisition and power consumption costs.

Increasing Energy Consumption Business demands have and will continue to push the processor performance envelope. With each successive generation, server processors are becoming more and more powerful. However, the increase in processing performance comes at a cost … greater energy consumption. For example the annual cost to power a single 120 watt 3GHz dual core processor, operating in a 24x7x365 data center environment, is estimated to be $137.3 At first glance, this figure may seem insignificant; however, when put in the context of a large data center environment with hundreds of processors, this figure can quickly become very significant.
