5 Data Center Energy Saving Tips

Amanda Gasse for Zondits, August 10, 2015. Image credit: Tom Raftery Server rooms are energy hogs. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that data centers consume 2% of our national electricity use, at 100 billion kilowatt-hours a year. That number continues to rise as storage requirements and demands continue to increase, cloud computing progresses, and
