Thank you Gartner for generating green awareness for my new book: The Green and Virtual Data Center!

Storage I/O trends

The other day Gartner issued a press release about their new findings that Users Are Becoming Increasingly Confused About the Issues and Solutions Surrounding Green IT.

This however what is missing from the Gartner report and action steps is to also say to read my new book “The Green and Virtual Data Center” (Auerbach).

However in all fairness, since Gartner has not yet seen it, I would seriously doubt that they would endorse anything other than one of their own publications.

Regardless, its great to see Gartner among others joining in and helping to transition industry awareness from Green Hype and help to close the Green gap (read more here and here) and begin addressing core issues that IT organizations can and are addressing to improve efficiency, address costs and enable sustainable business growth in an economic and environmental friendly way.

Thank you Gartner and let me know when and where you want a copy sent for a formal review and endorsement of my new book. Meanwhile, you can learn more at including a variety of green and related power, cooling, floor-space, environmental health and safety-EHS (PCFE) or green topics along with where to pre-order your advance copy from as well as other fine venues around the world.

Ok, nuff said.
