Being green at first seems to be just another burden on the life of the data center manager, but in reality the process of becoming green solves a number of other problems along the way. More efficient cooling strategies produce results that go right to the bottom line, as well as contribute to the overall corporate environmental goals. More effective utilization of servers not only means less power being used, but can also simplify the job of the administrators charged with keeping the servers running. And a green project forces the data center manager to think more strategically about where the computing needs of the organization are going, which makes him/her a more valuable member of the executive team. So while Kermit might be right about the difficulty in being green, the benefits more than make up for trouble.
