Data centers powered by fuel cells, not the public power grid, could cut both capital and operational costs, improve reliability, pollute less and take up less space, according to Microsoft researchers.
If Australian companies were to virtualize their severs and physical infrastructure, $6 billion in costs could be saved from now to 2020, according to a new whitepaper by research firm IDC.

But keep this is mind: Green is a powerful marketing term right now and cost-savings promises are part of the marketing pitch. Like all marketing promises, results vary.
