Add Your Comments

This week’s Uptime Institute Symposium on Green Enterprise Computing has wrapped up, and several attendees have posted summaries of the key presentations:

  • 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.
