English term or phrase: the rubber meets the road
EPA research shows that with relatively minor efforts by datacenter managers, including turning on already available power management features, enabling higher rates of resource consolidation, shutting off unused servers and improving infrastructure operations, we could save 20 percent of datacenter power. That's equal to cutting down the growth of our new power resources demanded by datacenters by half by 2010, or five 1,000MW power plants. So, while performance proudly held the top spot as the chief concern of all IT managers for a long time, it now needs to make room for performance-per-watt. Look for 2008 to be the year where {the rubber meets the road} in green computing, and energy efficiency takes over as the No. 1 priority for the IT manager.

关键时刻


Explanation:
用党中央的话来说:...最关键的一年

Where the rubber meets the road is the most important point for something, the moment of truth. An athlete can train all day, but the race is where the rubber meets the road and they'll know how good they really are.
