I didn't know what I would eat for breakfast today, so thanks to Larry Dignan for the V8 slap up against the head this morning. After watching his video blog, "green servers and ham" doesn't sound so good anymore.
We know a lot of businesses wrestle with mandates to be "green". But at the same time many more are struggling to find any way to lower energy costs and to eek out more capacity from their facilities.We agree with Larry that energy efficiency should not be an exercise in marketing. It's a serious business concern with a real-world engineering answer. That’s why we build Thermal Logic technology into every HP blade server to save power and cooling. That means energy efficient design married with energy efficient control - across the board. No special models, no “plant a tree” promotions, just common sense energy design + control with savings that you see on your electric bill every month and in the long life of your data center.
You decide if you want to take it to the bank or plant a tree with it.
