Online Calculator Gauges IT Data Center Costs and Carbon Footprint

A new online calculator allows companies to estimate the carbon footprint and related costs from their data centers, as well as from co-location facilities.

The Eco-IT Monitor is a project between SGI, Intel and BPM Forum.

The online tool is designed to help IT professionals and data center managers learn how to cut emissions and expenses by suggesting specific best practices.

SGI and Intel are members of the the Green Grid, a non-profit consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystem.

About 97 percent of IT professionals feel that it is important for their Internet and ecommerce related businesses to reduce their carbon footprint, yet little real action is underway, according to a February report, Think Eco-Logical – IT Sustainability Imperatives in Internet and eCommerce Business, by BPM Forum and its Global Renewable Energy and Environmental Network

  1. I am sorry, but this is another example of a oversimplified commercially driven calculator.

    First it only looks at your servers, it does not ask what kind, rate of virtualization, etc. then a PUE and based in this info they give you your cost and power usage ???

    And then if I install the proposed solution : Intel Xeon Processors my cost go down 10-20%. Now lets see who build this thing in the first place. Ahhhh, Intel. Surprise, surprise.

    Maybe nice to fill in when you have a drink with your mates and have a laugh, but not for any serious indication on where you stand and what you need to do.
