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 and Network Operations: Saving Run-the-Engine Costs 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.
Delineates techniques to minimize network power, cooling, floor space, and online storage while optimizing service performance, capacity, and availabilityDiscusses virtualization, network computing, and Web services as approaches for green data centers and networksEmphasizes best practices and compliance with international standards for green operationsExtends the green data center techniques to the networking environmentIncorporates green principles in the intranet, extranet, and the entire IT infrastructuresReviews networking, power management, HVAC and CRAC basicsPresents methodical steps toward a seamless migration to Green IT and Green Networking

"This overview should appeal to operational personnel who want to estimate cost and investment impacts or consider systems engineering options affecting the latter. ... the book is a time saver, and it may help contributors to greener designs see their specific work in a broader context."
