Article from the Environmental Leader here outlines how the Symantec Corp, an infrastructure software provider, will save $2.1 million dollars by their green IT efforts in a little over 3 years. Its a good read and case study on how green IT efforts can impact a specific company, and adds credibility to our continuing efforts. We brought up the benefits of greening IT up in a previous post – To Green The Data Center, IT Has To Feel Some Pain, and hope this article from a leading daily trade publication keeping corporate executives fully informed about energy, environmental and sustainability news helps prove our point that going green is a must!

This is big news for the future of Green IT! Here’s the full story.
