    3. Google, Microsoft and Apple data center projects use renewable energy

      Google, Microsoft and Apple data center projects use renewable energy

      Data center managers' interest in power has changed as energy costs rise. Large data centers, such as Apple's and Google's, are turning to renewable energy generation to offset the cost. Along the way, these early adopters are dealing with varied challenges. Businesses spend almost as much on power and cooling as they do on data center servers, according to International Data Corp., an analyst firm based in Framingham, Mass. Rather than simply buy traditional oil- or coal-based electricity,

    8. Open Data Center Alliance Demonstrates How Organizations Can Measure and

      Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA), the global organization where members work together to advance enterprise cloud solutions and services that are interoperable, secure and free of vendor lock-in, today announced the release of a new PoC (proof of concept) paper designed to test and validate the concepts outlined in the ODCA Carbon Footprint and Energy Efficiency Usage Model. The PoC is based on a study conducted with ODCA members from BMW, Datapipe and Verne Global to demonstrate how organizations from across the cloud ecosystem can use ODCA's Carbon Footprint and Energy Usage Model today to compare, measure and ultimately optimize enterprise cloud CO2 emissions.
