Going Green for Servers Not Processes!


Virtualization enabled green ITA few days back, we responded to an RFP for a virtualization monitoring, diagnosis, reporting, and trending solution. The RFP had been put out by a very large and reputed organization that is going through a datacenter refresh. They are in the process of virtualizing all their servers and are looking for a monitoring solution to help them during the move and beyond.

The RFP had over a hundred questions and the responses had to be submitted in hard copy format (16 copies!) and 4 CDs. We had to print over a thousand pages (yuck!) and courier our response.

Guess these folks believe in Going Green for the servers but not for all other processes!

    Very true, I have faced this too. I think it is high time for us to minimize usage of paper.
