When it comes to data center management, everyone talks about going green and how to manage energy efficiency. According to this report on Network Computer Blogger, Viridity, a start-up company, tackles the energy-efficiency problem with EnergyCenter, a software approach to enabling data center energy optimization.

Viridity aims to tackle energy-efficiency in the data center with its EnergyCenter software.

"Alas, gathering good power consumption information has not been easy. Faceplate information is simply not accurate enough. For example, power utilization and consumption are dynamic, not fixed, whereas faceplates assume a fixed use of energy. How can that be? One example is that modern processing chips use more or less energy depending upon workloads.

"To address this point, Viridity's EnergyCenter monitors utilization and maps that to energy consumption over time in order to create a more accurate power utilization profile. This, in turn, can be used for analysis, such as identifying underutilized IT equipment and planning when and why to make that aforementioned tech refresh."
