GreenIT is all about cost reduction by reducing energy consumption. The way how owners of software applications design, develop, and deploy is a determining factor in the energy need. However, in traditional hosting contracts cost reduction due to energy savings do not necessarily directly benefit the application owners.

In this workshop we will discuss how to enable and encourage greening of IT from three perspectives:

  1. The supplier perspective: What incentives exist currently for datacenters to reduce the energy footprint of the software applications of their customers?
  2. The measurement perspective: How can energy consumption in the data center be attributed fairly to individual software applications?
  3. The billing perspective: What billing models are possible to let application owners benefit financially from energy-optimizations?
