Windows Server Launch Will Detail Energy Efficiency

windows-server2.jpgWhen Microsoft launches the latest versions of Windows Server, SQL Server, and Visual Studio later this month, one of the talking points will be energy savings, according to InformationWeek’s Microsoft Weblog.  Microsoft will put out a document detailing the energy savings companies could see by moving to Microsoft’s latest operating system, database software, and development platform.

But Microsoft says it’s difficult to know exactly how much money a company could save on power with these new releases. “There’s so much variability,” said Microsoft’s new chief environmental strategist, Rob Bernard. Microsoft’s Windows Server 2008 studies show that companies using a full slate of power management tools can save up to 40 percent on power.

Bernard says he is working with many of Microsoft’s product teams to try to get them to develop software that runs more efficiently, and is reaching out to hardware manufacturers, chipset makers, and channel partners to do the same.
