From Desktops to Data Centers: Sustainable IT at Stanford
Friday, April 3, 2009
Stanford has created the position of sustainable IT, a dual report to the facilities and IT services department. By pulling resources from both of these areas, Stanford has been able to develop energy- and cost-saving programs that address desktop computing, administrative computing, and research computing. In addition, Stanford is using the IT infrastructure to enable energy savings for the rest of campus through innovative "work anywhere" programs and is building a bridge between faculty conducting research on IT energy savings and staff seeking innovative solutions to their energy-saving efforts. Learn how Stanford has framed these efforts, what specific projects it is embarking on, and how it calculates both ROI and payback for each initiative it deploys.
