Green Data centres are of increasing importance to companies as energy prices continue to increase, storage and processing demands growing, at times in unpredictable ways. Data centres of all sizes need to be more flexible, resilient and scalable to meet the demands of a globalised business environment.

Alongside IBM clients in their journey to achieving Green Data Centres, IBM focuses on the three key challenges of controlling cost and service delivery (rising costs of operations, explosion of data and information volumes, increasing complexity of deploying new applications and solutions), ensuring business resiliency (availability and increasing compliance requirements) and security (assets as well as information) and managing energy demands (rising costs, power and thermal management issues, environmental compliance and governance). By focusing on Green Data Centres, IBM and their customers are working to reverse the trend of 70% of IT budgets being used operationally.
