Symantec Corporation (Green Data Center)
Symantec's recent Green IT efforts have included optimizing its data center environment for reduced footprint and energy savings. The Alchemy Solutions Group has quantified the four-year business value of these efforts at almost $12 million, and Symantec conservatively estimates four-year carbon footprint savings of 15.5 million kilograms of CO2.
As a result of its ongoing Green IT efforts, Symantec is achieving substantial business benefit. The Alchemy Solutions Group conducted a Total Operational and Economic Impact (T.O.E.I.) analysis and quantified realized and projected business value of almost $12 million between July 2007 and December 2011 in the areas of remote site backup productivity gains; hardware maintenance cost savings; labor productivity gains; and energy cost avoidance.
