Intel case study: BMW builds a sustainable IT infrastructure

: Tuesday, August 04 - 2009 @ 14:22

This Intel white paper looks at how Intel technology helped the BMW Group strike the right balance between efficiency, security and reliability.

Key white paper points:
- Environmental responsibilities
Intel wanted to improve the use and energy-efficiency of BMW Group’s IT infrastructure, from the client right through to the data centre, without compromising security and reliability.

- An efficiency roadmap
E2IT advises on improving client, server and data centre efficiency. It recommends: migrating hardware to the more energy-efficient Intel Core microarchitecture; making default profiles for clients and servers more energy-efficient; increasing the notebook/ PC ratio; investigating benefits of virtualisation; ensuring new hardware is Energy Star compliant; and investigating more efficient data centre cooling methods.

- Power savings across the board
Implementing these measures is expected to reduce annual client energy consumption by more than 60% and annual server energy consumption by more than 50% (natural hardware growth not considered). In addition, data centre efficiency is anticipated to increase from 35% to 65%.
