The Greening of the Datacenter

I moderated a panel yesterday afternoon called “The Greening of the Data Center,” at the Green Technology World Conference. The panelists were all excellent, with a thorough knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing data center administrators as well as the market conditions in general.
 
The speakers were Jim Smith, vice president of engineering at Digital Realty Trust, Bill Ryan, product marketing manager, high-end and service provider systems business unit at Foundry Networks, Bob Wooley, director of technical quality management at Lee Technologies, an APC partner, and Lawrence Vertal, senior strategist at AMD.
 
The conversation ranged from what administrators and managers of data centers need to know in order to be more efficient to government regulation to the hottest products to the future of the industry.
 
In the end the panel agreed that the trend towards greening the datacenter is unstoppable. The financial benefits are too compelling to be ignored and the benefits to the environment are huge.
