Roundup: The Uptime Institute Symposium
May 2nd, 2008 By: Rich Miller
This week’s Uptime Institute Symposium on Green Enterprise Computing has wrapped up, and several attendees have posted summaries of the key presentations:
- Ken Oestreich from Cassatt has recaps of each of the conference’s three days, including a review of Wednesday’s presentations from the EPA on Energy Star initiatives for the data center, as well as the DOE’s DC-Pro tool. Ken also has summaries of Day One and Day Two of the event.
- Deborah Grove also writes about the EPA programs, including its initiative to gather energy efficiency information from data center operators. Deborah also blogs about a breakfast for women participating in the symposium on day two, and Ken Brill’s keynote.
- Ted Samson from Sustainable IT at InfoWorld blogs about six lessons learned at the symposium. “The real challenge, one shared by the 400-plus attendees at the symposium, remains figuring out how to get from inefficient Point A to efficient Point Green,” Ted writes.
- Dave Ohara from the Green Data Center Blog has recaps of the keynotes from Ken Brill and Microsoft’s Mike Manos, as well as a fun item about a momentary detente in the container wars, as Sun’s Mark Monroe tours the Rackable ICE Cube.
