Title: Reduce energy requirements in computer center
Rising energy demands present a problem in the IT branch. The online simulation tool Green Dynamics by T-Systems analyzes areas of computer centers that can be optimized. The goal is to raise consciousness concerning IT energy usage. The program demonstrates the interplay of individual system components and indicates options for reducing energy usage with the use of modern technology. Two scenarios are computed and assessed. Increased efficiency in the computer center based on these measures can reduce energy usage (and thus costs and CO2 emissions) by up to 82%. The tool is also available in English and so ready for utilization worldwide.
