Internet Evolution's Green IT Tutorial is presented using a custom designed multimedia tutorial player, which seamlessly integrates video and audio with loads of other supporting information - such as educational white papers, informational graphics, and detailed PowerPoint presentations.

The videos themselves are divided in a Q&A format that allows IT professionals to drill down into only the issues that interest them. Each video tutorial segment provides the kind of comprehensive education that IT professionals and enterprises need in order to formulate a plan that both reduces the carbon footprint of their data centers and IT infrastructures, while saving them huge sums of money.

Some of the questions answered in the comprehensive tutorial include: What is Green IT? What are the IT challenges and benefits that drive demand for Green IT? What role can virtualization play in reducing the carbon footprint of data centers? What impact does green IT have on data center design?

Green IT tutor, Rick Thompson, co-founder of Greentech Media, details the scope of these problems with hard facts and numbers and also offers solutions and guidelines on implementing green technology best practices. "Green IT is much more than efficient servers, and represents an enormous market opportunity once it's fully understood," says Thompson. "Combining aspects of data center design, best practices, new technologies, and, ultimately, renewable sources of energy, Green IT will emerge as the next critical step in the evolution of enterprise computing."
