Can Virtualization Green The Emerald Isle? is reporting that Microsoft’s server and tools business manager, Bill O’Brien, believes that adopting new virtualization technology — like that available in Microsoft’s new Windows Server 2008 — can save Irish businesses over 50 million Euros annually.
Said O’Brien:
“It’s estimated only five percent of businesses are virtualized today, that represents a tremendous growth potential and an incredible saving in terms of businesses expenditure on energy year-on-year.”
SiliconRepublic also quotes O’Brien as saying if every server in Ireland was upgraded to Windows Server 2008, it would remove more than two million tons of CO2 from entering the environment every year.
