Overview

In recent years, socio-political trends toward environmental responsibility and the pressing need to reduce Run-the-Engine (RTE) costs have resulted in the concept of Green IT. Although a significant amount of energy is used to operate routing, switching, and transmission equipment, comparatively less attention has been paid to Green Networking. A clear and concise introduction to green networks and green network operations, Designing Green Networks guides you through the techniques available to achieve efficiency goals for corporate and carrier networks, including deploying more efficient hardware, blade form-factor routers and switches, and pursuing consolidation, virtualization, and network and cloud computing. The book:
• Delineates techniques to minimize network power, cooling, floor space, and online storage while optimizing service performance, capacity, and availability
• Discusses virtualization, network computing, and Web services as approaches for green data centers and networks
• Emphasizes best practices and compliance with international standards for green operations
• Extends the green data center techniques to the networking environment
• Incorporates green principles in the intranet, extranet, and the entire IT infrastructures
• Reviews networking, power management, HVAC and CRAC basics
• Presents methodical steps toward a seamless migration to Green IT and Green Networking
