You may have read our primer on Virtualization technology where we detailed some compelling reasons to consider virtualizing some or all of your servers. At the time of writing that article we were not aware of a new program from PG&E that can give you up to $300 rebate per server that you virtualize. While the process is not without some invasive steps, such as before and after inspections, a large project would be well worth the work. Let’s say you were planning to consolidate 20 servers in your data center, that could mean up to $6,000 back from PG&E, not a paltry sum by any means. Even for a smaller business looking to consolidate a small server closet the savings could pay a portion of your installation and configuration costs. This is the sort of creative incentive that shows PG&E is a technically aware organization.
