ABSTRACT
The article reports that London Borough of Hillingdon is going to cut its power requirements for legacy servers by upto 82%. The organization will consolidate forty servers onto three by using vitalization software. The energy consumed by the new servers is 3,450 kVAs annually, compared with the 18,720 kVAs used by the 40 legacy servers, an 82% reduction. However, Hillingdon's information technology department said that it was unable to put an exact figure on the cost savings, but the project is expected to pay for itself relatively quickly.
