Uptime Institute’s Server Roundup contest was introduced to encourage the removal and recycling of obsolete IT equipment in an effort to decrease data center energy use. Decommissioning a single 1U rack server can result in a savings of $500 per year in energy costs, an additional $500 in operating system licenses, and $1,500 in hardware maintenance costs. In this panel, the 2012-13 Server Roundup Winners and Finalists discuss the challenges and rewards of a disciplined server decommissioning program.
