What is Green Computing?

Green computing is the environmentally responsible use of computers and related resources. Such practices include the implementation of energy-efficient computers, servers and peripherals as well as reduced resource consumption and proper disposal of electronic waste.  It's also about the other green: cutting operating costs as the demand for computing power soars.

How can PCM help me get started?

Virtualization Software - Combining several physical servers into virtual machines on one single, powerful system, thereby unplugging the original hardware and reducing power and cooling consumption.

EPEAT Gold/Silver Rated Hardware - EPEAT evaluates electronic products in relation to 51 total environmental criteria -– 23 required criteria and 28 optional criteria. To qualify for registration as an EPEAT product, the product must conform to all the required criteria. Products are also ranked in EPEAT according to three tiers of environmental performance - Bronze, Silver, and Gold. All registered products must meet the required criteria, and achieve Bronze status. Manufacturers may then achieve a higher level EPEAT “rating” for products by meeting additional optional criteria.

Terminal Servers/Thin Clients  - When using terminal servers, users connect to a central server; all of the computing is done at the server level but the end user experiences the operating system. These can be combined with thin clients, which use up to 1/8 the amount of energy of a normal workstation, resulting in a decrease of energy costs and consumption

Voice over IP (VoIP) - reduces the telephony wiring infrastructure by sharing the existing Ethernet copper.
