Add Your Comments

Dave Ohara from the Green Data Center Blog has a summary of the opening keynote from the Uptime Institute Symposium 2008 in Orlando, which got underway Sunday and will continue through Wednesday. The theme is Green Enterprise Computing and the opening keynote speaker was Mike Manos from Microsoft, who was also the keynote at Data Center World earlier this month.

UPDATE: Deborah Grove from Green IT also blogged the Manos keynote. Some factoids: Microsoft data centers gain a net 20,000 new systems every month, said Manos, who also noted that data center construction costs rise 10 percent every year.
