Tech industry bloggers are spreading the word about the new HP research facility devoted to sustainable data center technologies. The facility, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, has drawn quite a bit of coverage, including posts from bloggers who took a tour March 30 and 31.
Here’s a sampler of the coverage:
- “HP is showing leadership in power and cooling, another critical component of the datacenter, and of HP’s Converged Infrastructure strategy. It is good to see that with Servers, Networking, and Storage, the company is making sure that all parts of the CI puzzle fit, and fit perfectly.” – John Obeto, Absolutely Windows
- “HP wants to create a data center that requires ZERO Net Energy. This is accomplished by using more renewable energy than energy required to make the product (Embedded Energy) or use the product (Operation Expense Energy).” – Kevin Houston, Blades Made Simple
- “HP’s goal with the new facility, essentially, is to ‘go green’—specifically, to expand its Converged Infrastructure architecture by developing technologies that eliminate IT sprawl, increase energy efficiency, and reduce power consumption. All of this is in the interest of helping clients minimize their carbon footprint and reinvest cost savings into their core business.” – Jason Bovberg, Windows IT Pro
- “As you might expect, this living and breathing sustainability test bed relies mainly on HP technologies, so I expect we will hear about it often in coming months as HP and its competitors turn up the green data center heat.” – Heather Clancy, GreenTech Pasture, ZDNet
