Green cloud computing quiz: Raise your energy efficiency grade

Take our green cloud computing quiz to see if you are doing enough to conserve energy. Reducing energy use helps the earth and saves you money.

Most of us try to help the environment by recycling, taking shorter showers, using public transportation or eating organic foods -- but what do you, as a cloud provider, know about going green in the cloud?

Running an energy-efficient cloud is good for the soul, but it's better for the bottom line. Taking the right steps to reduce energy consumption can make a serious dent in the electricity bill. Don't be on the cusp of failing the green cloud test like Apple did. Before you take this quiz to find out what you know about conserving energy in the cloud, find the resources you need to raise your grade, lower your power costs and achieve your green cloud computing goals.
