Mr. Poniatowski covers all the hot topics of "Green IT" which is relevant to the times we live in today - The book looks at what every IT professional is dealing with, and that's power or lack of it due to the ever increasing demand, e-waste and it's plague on our planet, going paperless, TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), ROI (Return on Investment) and other related topics, all centered around the "Green" movement. This book is well thought out and addresses the key issues in a manner which provides a clear understanding of various choices that can be made to help make the environment better. Information Technology (IT) is the lifeblood of every aspect of our civilization. By considering the importance of Green IT as one of the parameters to be addressed during their decision making and making some green IT choices, Executives can help minimize the impact of Information Technology installations on the environment. I found this book very informative.

This is a well planned, informative and well written book on how to truly leverage the power of today's technology to "do more with less". I know I learned a lot from both, contributing and reading this book.

Format: Paperback
Foundations of Green IT comes at a very important time in the IT industry and I think Mr Poniatowski does a great job of bringing the most pressing issues forward. Cost savings are paramount to organizations looking for an edge in today's marketplace and this book highlights such cost saving solutions as virtualization and consolidation. I think it's also very telling that the book looks forward to cloud computing and the future of consolidation as the pace of change is ever increasing. It's a very helpful resource for both IT professionals and those looking to learn more about making your infrastructure more "green".
