When energy use is reviewed at a national or international level
we realize that about 35% of the western world’s total energy
and carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint is linked to transport and
a large fraction of that with freight movement.
Collectively, cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all
U.S. emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of CO2 and other
global-warming gases for every gallon of gas1.
So, if we are to reduce energy usage and abate CO2 emissions
and deliver cost savings, it is essential that a lot of attention is
paid to commercial transport.
Priorities for Increasing Fuel Economy explores these challenges
and provides the essential information you need to help you achieve
competitive advantage across your commercial fleet operations.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
Radiator Express Warehouse (1800Radiator), a fast-growing automotive parts distributor, found that it was running at maximum power and its racks were full. Using VMware virtualization technology, the company was able to take 31 physical servers out of production, resulting in a 25 percent reduction in power and cooling costs.
WWF is the world’s largest independent conservation organization. As part of its IT department’s contribution to environmentally-friendly business practices, WWF-UK deployed VMware virtualization into its live production environment. They decreased server count, lessened cooling requirements, minimized the space needed to house their datacenter and significantly reduced their overall carbon footprint.

Efficiency is not about maxing out utilization, nor is it about achieving the highest possible MIPS, IOPS or any other standard metric. Technically, efficiency is about the ratio of useful work performed to the energy expended in doing that work. You want the greatest amount of output from your IT infrastructure for the lowest possible cost. It’s a bit like long-distance driving and working to achieve the highest possible miles per gallon through constant observation of time, speed and gas consumption in the face of varying traffic and weather conditions. Flooring the gas pedal is not always the best option. What can you do to optimize your converged infrastructure efficiency? While there are no 10-second, quick-fix answers, here are five strategies you can start implementing right now to bring your organization much closer to optimal efficiency and long-term cost savings.
