This is a very nicely done book really taking a practical look at how energy is used on your network. This is the first "benchmarking" book for energy worth a crap that I have read. Most of the "green" fluff out there today is loaded down with market so vendors can push their wares on your network. Hey, we all have mortgages to pay right? But come on man! I just read about energy efficient paper shredders that save you thousands a year...and it had the math to prove it! Here is the part and the question that is not being anaswered; "Where do those numbers come from and why?" As an engineer, I need a nice reference to level the playing field and bring everyone to the table. This book has successfully done just that.

I have interviewed Rob and John numerous times in the past for TechWiseTV and I have always been impressed with their honest desire to conserve energy and build the best network possible now matter who's gear you use. They took that same passion, common sense and applied it to this book. If you are burnt out on read "greening" pdfs from every vendor under the Sun and just want a honest and solid method for understanding the problem, designing a solution and being able to honestly report your before and after results, then this is the book for you. I highly recommend this to all networking geeks out there!

So, first, full disclosure.
I have had the great pleasure of working with Rob Aldrich as a professional colleague for more than five years. We work for separate companies but with a common purpose - making IT more efficient and making our environment more sustainable. Not an easy task. But one we both believe is achievable - mostly through common sense and a clear understanding of best practices - as well as a firm commitment to adhere to the plan.

Rob and I both know that the best way to get any business to adhere to best energy/IT/business/sustainability practices is to give leaders a very practical and realistic view of how energy is used and how it can be conserved. As a benchmarking book for energy efficiency with that practical bent here's useful information you can put into practice.

It's not just about the business - although it does start there. It's also about commitment to the planet. Rob pays attention to both. The book proves it.

More About the Author

Rob Aldrich was born in 1973 at Newport, Rhode Island. Son of a military family he spent his childhood on military bases from Puerto Rico to Saudi Arabia. Returning to the United States at age 13 he was able to attend the University of Rhode Island and was the first person in his immediate family to graduate from college. Having never lost the travel bug, Rob continued to move after graduating. He has since lived in Boston, New York City, Sydney, Australia, San Jose, California and currently resides in Portland, OR.
After paying his own way through college and receiving a degree in environmental sciences in 1995, he quickly realized there was very little money in environmental work at that time. Feeling torn between financial pressures and a passion for the environment he decided to enter into Finance then on to Facilities Management and eventually Information Technologies (IT). The work in these industries helped pay of the school loans but the passion was lacking. Rob joined Cisco Systems in 2005 and was able to carve out a role focused on Green technology development. Finally, passion and pay came together.
Since 2005 Rob has been directly involved in many aspects of Cisco's Green strategy. Beginning his work with energy efficient data center design, moving on to Cisco EnergyWise and now leads a professional services team delivering energy management services.
Rob's first book, IP Enabled Energy Management was focused on delivering a real world "how to" guide for managing IT asset energy use through software. He coined the tag line "Taking the Gray out of Green" to sum up the books intent. He is currently focused on helping large enterprises reduce their carbon footprint through implementing IP-enabled energy management systems.
