Energy savings in the data center is getting to be a big deal. IBM, for example, has developed a gizmo called the MMT. It's a robotic sensor tower that prowls the data center to map temperature and humidity to find savings. There's a lot of discussion about just how cool it in your center really needs to be – Given the size of some of these installations, raising the temperature even a degree or two can make a big difference.
