Tonight I ran across a very nice article though, that summarized all of the recent news, initiatives and other tidbits quite nicely. It also has a number of links out to websites with all of the pertinent information.
In the article, Bruce Myatt from EYP Mission Critical Facilities covers:
- The July EPA report and plans to congress ( I agree that this report is a must-read for anyone in the data center business)
- Initiatives summary for Sun, IBM, Dell, HP, Fujitsu, 365 Main, LBNL and others
- Finally and perhaps most intriguing is the following quote:
Finally, an anonymous Internet giant in the neighborhood is said to be developing a “fan free” air circulation system to cool its servers. Relying upon natural convection and server fans only, their data centers may require no computer room air-conditioner units or plug fans at all to drive the air circulation in their data centers. Now, that is progress!
Also -- as Rich Miller mentioned today, the DOE is joining the Green Grid.
