    Also, I ticked YES to the power management, but again, that was without any consideration of being Green, but simply of saving money.

    To be honest, after answering NO to the first question, the rest were irrelevent. I dont konw of Green Technologies, and its not something I have thought about.

    Im not Anti Green.. I just dont know anything about it.
    I agree, the questions would have been difficult in that case . Personally, i see Virtualisation as a means of going greener. By conslidating your infrastructure, you can reduce on power consumption (in theory). I have managed to get hold of three servers, so i will be doing some power tests to see whether Virtualisation does offer any considerable energy savings. Again, i will include this in my main report.

    Thanks for completing it though

    There are 4 year degrees, most of which have a year in industry as part of the course. Most Bachelors degrees however are 3 year courses.

    Done it. But I agree with RabbieBurns any greening is a by product of cost saving not a consideration in itself

    All done, and one question about your statement above, did this include the increased cost of data centre space, power consumption, air conditioning etc?

    I have done it but i wouldn't consider when i went virtual that the throught of it being greener went through my head - more the using existing equipment to its full potential

    To be honest, i couldnt answer that, but take a look at the article and video at this link:

    Thin-client saves energy costs: Case study in Green ICT : JISC

    I found it quite interesting.

    Thanks to all responders again, i think we are upto 33 now
