Virtualisation leads green IT spend: Kable Global ICT Intelligence

| August 16, 2015

Server virtualisation is considered to be the biggest green ICT activity by company IT departments, according to research by Kable Global ICT Intelligence.

A survey by the researchers on how companies are cutting emissions revealed that 68% of IT departments are using virtualised infrastructure as way to go green. The next most popular green ICT activity is ‘printing and paper usage management,’ (64%) then ‘storage virtualisation’ (61%).

Interestingly, arguably the most power intensive requirement inside an organisation – the datacentre, is only targeted by 56% of the respondents to the survey when it comes to improving efficiency and cooling.

The results were based on a survey of 2,685 IT professionals from organisations across the world.
