Earlier today, we wrote about The Green Grid, a consortium of tech companies aiming to create a “multi-year set of design guides proposed for use by data center operators and designers to build and operate energy efficient data centers.” There are a variety of products that can help operators green their data centers, and some of the best come from a Green Grid member called Avocent.

The company provides data center management software that allows operators to effectively track energy consumption. Avocent’s DSView 3 Management Software, for example, allows companies to monitor and measure IT energy consumption, costs, and trends within their data centers and remote locations.

According to Ben Grimes, Avocent’s CTO, the company’s software can do “aggregation at whatever level you want— from sockets to racks to buildings to entire IT infrastructures.”

And since DSView 3 allows operators to control consumption remotely, it reduces the need for data centers to be located near major population centers and cities. Not bad for a piece of software.
