About this book

A green and virtual data center relies on the efficient usage of underlying physical resources to achieve energy savings. Green servers, storage, and networks deliver the performance, availability, and responsiveness for all types of application needs and requirements.

This book provides strategies and blueprints for enabling and deploying environmentally friendly next-generation data centers. Addressing multiple technology domains and disciplines, it looks at design and implementation tradeoffs using various best practices and technologies to sustain application and business growth while maximizing resources, such as power, cooling, floor space, storage, server performance, and network capacity. The book shows how to make server and storage virtualization energy efficient and still be able to support a diversity of high-performance applications. It also explores performance and capacity planning in a virtual environment that supports resource-demanding applications, such as OLTP and streaming media.
