How IT can drive immense business value by "going green": the business case, and best practices for making it happen ° Includes multiple case studies of IT organizations that have successfully gone green, and lessons from IBM's $1B green computing initiative ° How to systematically reduce data center energy usage: covers organizational issues, ROI, procurement, asset disposal, and much more ° Timely help for companies facing rising energy costs, new government rules, and issues of public perception Summary Companies are increasingly recognizing the major environmental impact of their data centers and other IT infrastructure - and also realizing that they can save a fortune by "going green." Drawing on new knowledge IBM has gained through its $1 billion Green Data Center initiatives, John Lamb reviews every major issue IT organizations face in improving their environmental performance. Readers will discover new products, services, and best practices that can reduce data center energy consumption by an average of 42%, as well as opportunities for incorporating green computing principles throughout their entire IT infrastructures. Lamb covers both the potential benefits of moving to Green IT and the roadblocks. He discusses internal organizational obstacles; as well as regulations, energy cost shifts, and utility rate incentives that will drive companies towards green IT. Lamb also offers specific how-to guidance on everything from measuring energy usage and optimizing data center cooling equipment through leveraging virtualization. The Greening of IT presents several detailed Green IT case studies, including utilities, universities, and companies of all sizes, worldwide. Lamb concludes by previewing emerging trends in Green IT, and identifying "on the horizon" opportunities to monitor and prepare for.

Looking for a way to succeed? Maybe you want to excel in your career, maybe you are trying to improve your personal business, or maybe you have been trying to gain confidence and boost your self-esteem. Whatever your personal goals may be, this book can help you learn what it takes to achieve success by displaying numerous traits and characteristics that are utilized daily by the US Army's Special Forces officers. The Green Berets take on near-impossible missions around the world every day and succeed, and this book aims to give you a look into the qualities that contribute to their success (so that you may use them to achieve success in your own life and business). You do not have to be a Green Beret to possess these vital personality traits and characteristics, just like you do not have to undergo the intense training that they do to learn something from those lessons and utilize it for your own success. A great many of the characteristics, lessons, and personal traits that so many of the Green Berets rely on both in training and missions can also be utilized by the average civilian to successfully achieve goals set in both life or business. Several former Green Berets have been interviewed to determine which characteristics are essential to success in personal life and business after returning to civilian life, and this audiobook has summarized those interviews and made the list of lessons available to you. This book explores several of the many characteristics that are essential to the US Army's Special Force's success. Beginning with a brief description of who the Green Berets are and what they do, this book then dives into a summary of a variety of personal traits that are utilized by the Green Berets during training and their missions. These traits are not only incredibly important to the Special Forces Soldier's training and career in the armed forces, these 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Goldsmith.
