The book reviews the latest developments in facilities, server, storage, networking, and monitoring technologies and provides a roadmap of how each can be used to create next-generation data centers that combine efficiency with scalability ... Schulz's book provides an excellent primer for those wanting to understand how to create data centers for this new paradigm. --Kurt Marko, in Processor, March 2009, Vol. 31, No. 11 What I like about Schulz's approach is that he doesn't really pass judgment on whether or not you should re-adjust your IT initiatives around some greener-good agenda. He's focused more so on illustrating how some of the technologies you're already considering for the good of your business -- virtualization, blade platforms, cloud computing power management -- might otherwise be pretty cool for the environment, too. --Heather Clancy, Green Tech Pastures, in ZDNet, February 26, 2009 Greg Schulz has presented a concise and visionary perspective on the Green issues. He has cut through the hype and highlighted where to start and what the options are. A great place to start your green journey and a useful handbook to have as the journey continues. --Greg Brunton, EDS/An HP Company I must admit that I have been slightly skeptical at times, when it comes to what the true value is behind all of the discussions on 'green' technologies in the data center. As someone who has seen both the end user and vendor side of things, I think my skepticism gets heightened more than it normally would be. This book really helped dispel my skepticism. ...extremely well organized and easy to follow. Each chapter has a very good introduction and comprehensive summary. This book could easily serve as a blueprint for organizations to follow when they look for ideas on how to design new data centers. It's a great addition to an IT Bookshelf. --Dr. Steve Guendert, Global Solutions Architect, Brocade Communications
