Business Week Looks at Data Center Heat

Add Your Comments

Business Week looks at data center cooling challenges in an article in its print edition and a package of stories and slide show online. The online package features Sun’s work in parallel processing, research at HP that led to Dynamic Smart Cooling, PG&E’s incentive programs for energy-efficient data centers, and IBM research initiatives on cooling. If you’ve been reading Data Center Knowledge for long, most of this will be familiar territory. But if there’s someone in your organization who still needs convincing about the data center cooling issue, you can point them to this package, as it provides a good one-stop external reference from a familiar media outlet.
