For most,Â the real motivation for going green is aboutÂ the cost and availability of power. Ted Samson said on his Sustainable IT blog that there are four reasons to go green:
Reduce the impact of an imminent energy crisis
Garner good green PR
Help the environmentÂ
Helping the environment is nice, but would businesses and shareholders care as much about the environment if power was cheap and abundant?
Greening IT is a noble social cause and we should devote efforts toward it. Being green isn't new.Â Â IT has had the chance to be greenÂ for a long time.Â Think about it. Overprovisioning hardware, printing tomes of reports and leaving PCs on at night were par for the course in most IT departments and the business. Â
When you stand at the edge of a landfill, do youÂ see wasteÂ orÂ recycling potential?Â Â What do we see whenÂ we look inside our data centers? Do we seeÂ recycling potential?
How much power is being wasted keeping data around that we will never use again? It is far tooÂ easyÂ to be wasteful in IT. We do it without even realizing it. However, there has never been a need to worry about being green in IT â€“ no outside pressure, no mandates, no accountability.Â NowÂ that's changing.Â
Economics is the primary driver for a greener IT and I'm sure this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone. WeÂ likeÂ theÂ side-effect of preserving the environment, but let's be honest.Â
In IT, if we really want to, we can do a lot more.
