Green computing

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith


Virtualization, considered a cost-savings technology, is getting “greened up.” Increasingly groups and industry experts are talking about the ecological benefits of virtualization. By reducing a data center’s power and cooling requirements, a company can reduce its carbon footprint, they say. Companies may want to consider server consolidation, application virtualization, and virtual application test labs.

Hoping to shine more light on the “green” benefits of virtualization, the Computer Measurement Group has added a track about the subject to its upcoming annual conference (Dec. 7-12). Session titles include the following:

  • Capacity modeling and planning in virtual environments
  • Green data center: A case study
  • Modeling/sizing techniques for different virtualization strategies

Other tracks at the conference include application load and stress testing and software performance engineering.
