Processing virtualization and green computing

"As with other forms of virtualization, this is not new. It’s been an important part of most datacenters for the past 30 years or so. Suppliers such as HP, IBM, Sun and others have made this software available for years. Suppliers such as Cassatt, DataSynapse, Scalent, SteelEye, Surgient, VMware, XenSource and quite a few others offer this technology on industry standard, high volume clients, servers and blades. As with storage virtualization, the careful use of this software can help organizations reduce hardware, maintenance and administrative costs while also helping preserve the endangered kilowatt and preventing the release of the dreaded BTU, Calorie or Joule. How is your organization using processing virtualization to create a green computing environment?"
