Energy optimization with HP ProLiant Gen8

Today I have a podcast focusing on HP ProLiant Gen8.  The podcast is with Mike Kendall.  Mike manages the team focused on intelligent infrastructure and options for our ProLiant servers.  Mike and I discuss some of the innovations in Gen8 specific to automated energy optimization.  This podcast is a bit longer than most that I do (about 22 minutes) but I thought this was a very interesting discussion and I think you will to. 


Sustainable Data Center lab tour for Earth Day and beyond

Today I have a video tour of our new state of the art data center in Ft. Collins, Colorado.  A few years ago, HP CIO Randy Mott took on a massive data center consolidation within HP - this data center is also the result of data center consolidation but not for HP IT but our R&D teams across our storage, server, networking, and software businesses. 


The data center was built in collaboration with HP Labs and uses advanced sustainable data center technologies.
