More news out of California about how consolidation can save absolutely huge sums. How much? In California’s case a staggering $3 billion in 3 years. The project will reduce energy costs by 30% and data center square footage by 50% via projects that the Governator signed into law this week. We’ve spoken a number of times about the benefits of consolidating IT infrastructure but its always nice to get a reminder of just how much it can really do. I think the down economy has really helped cities see IT as a way to save money instead of a black hole.
