2017 – Cover Letter to President Donald J. Trump

Overview

The attached white paper succinctly reviews: 1) the Federal law providing for ongoing, important research in this subject matter (PL 109-431’s “Report to Congress on Server and Data Center Energy Efficiency”); 2) the key trend and concept identified in the research (“…computers and data centers could account for up to 50% of total electrical usage in the U.S. within just a few decades…” and changes in “Active Server Utilization” can effectively slow the trend); and 3) a solution designed to easily create positive gains (automated server optimization leads to an average 30% capacity improvement to help minimize energy consumption and maximize capital investments in complex data-center realms).
