      Greater energy efficiency is a laudable goal, but it is not and cannot be the chief goal of business. There’s always room for greater efficiency, but the costs of improvement area eventually become prohibitive. In light of increasingly frequent calls for regulation in this area, as well as potential emerging standards (such as ASHRAE 90.4P), it’s important to consider who should really be driving energy efficiency in the data center—and it’s not providers.
