One way to reduce the greenhouse gas from IT is green computing, which is the practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, servers, and associated subsystems for reducing the use of hazardous materials, maximizing energy efficiency, and promoting the recyclability or biodegradability of products.
Sustainable ICTs and Management Systems for Green Computing focuses on information technology using sustainable green computing to reduce energy and resources used. While there are a wide variety of green computing topics, this book is a collection of IT articles using green computing techniques that will provide timely, important technologies and methods of green computing to IT workers, students, and researchers alike.
Reviews and Testimonials
The 18 papers in this volume address the need to monitor the energy and resources consumed by the information and communication technology industry, and identify ways computers can support environmental practices. German researchers propose a self-optimizing technique for IT infrastructures that automatically tunes the energy efficiency of IT systems, and Japanese researchers present algorithms for selecting a server from a cluster that reduces total power consumption. Other topics include multidimensional analysis of supply chain environmental performance, mitigating the environmental impact of smartphones with device reuse, video compression for portable and low-power applications, and a hybrid energy system based on photovoltaic and fuel cells.
