Green Computing in the Data Center: Server Refresh Yields Quarter-Million-Dollar Rebate for Teradata


“How often do you get to cut costs and do something better?” asks Scott Gnau, chief development officer for Teradata R&D. Gnau led a recent server consolidation project that consolidated 319 aging servers onto a private cloud based on the Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series. Gnau says the project saves enough energy to run more than 200 homes—and enough money to pay for itself within one year. The project also helped Teradata earn an energy incentive rebate of USD $250,000 from its local utility company and enables Gnau’s IT team to better serve its internal customers.
