She is part of the Industrial and Process team, which leads NYSERDA’s effort on designing and providing incentives for data center efficiency projects in New York State. Sandy is the key contact for data centers in the New York downstate region.
The data center is a common starting point for most green IT initiatives. Data centers not only consume a tremendous amount of energy, but are riddled with IT inefficiencies. Take, for example, the average server environment where 30% are of servers are “dead” — consuming energy, but performing no useful work. And data center managers have ample opportunity to improve efficiencies across other IT systems, like storage and networks, and facilities equipment, like power distribution and cooling. This session will help data center managers develop a comprehensive green data center framework across their server, storage, network and facilities assets to deliver financial and environmental savings.
