Last April, Google hosted the Efficient Data Center Summit, where bigwigs from the largest IT companies showed up to share tips for reducing resource usage, learn from one another, and share hugs and kisses.
The attendees gained all sorts of useful insight on how to make their data centers greener while still keeping their processing power in line. For those not cool enough to be invited to the party, Google was nice enough to place a video of the event presentation on their website.
The tips offered are mainly for owners of large data centers, but even if you don’t own several hundred servers, the presentation is still interesting to watch. It’s nice to see a company do the right thing and work for the greater good rather than focus only on profit.
