Telecom Italia is Italy’s main information and communications technology (ICT) group and an important player on the Latin American market, which represents 38 percent of the company’s turnover (as at November 2012). Today, Telecom Italia infrastructures and technological platforms allow voice and data to be transformed into advanced telecommunications services as well as leading-edge ICT solutions.... The company is constantly innovating and incorporating new technologies into its offerings. Such a demanding goal, however, is placing pressure on data center energy consumption. To find a way of improving energy efficiency and better managing power consumption it decided to run a proof of concept (PoC) on Intel® Data Center Manager (Intel® DCM) and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4807.
