    1. Managing A Green Data Center

      Managing A Green Data Center

      Businesses everywhere are going green and becoming more interested in environmentally-friendly ways to accomplish things. This can be seen all across the world, in all industries, and it has even made it into schools. Data centers are no exception. When managing a green data center, there are many different components that have to come together to reduce the environmental impact of the center itself.

      CommScope says forget generators, buy hydrogen fuel cells instead

      CommScope announced Monday it will resell a phone-booth-size outdoor fuel cell system that uses hydrogen as fuel as a backup power solution for buildings such as data centers and telecommunications facilities. Pitched as an environmentally friendly and quiet replacement for the commonly used diesel generators, the system can sustain supply power for up to 16 hours.

      TechWatch: Why your data center needs a fuel cell generator

      We live in an energy-hungry world, and IT is an energy-voracious industry. Large generating plants and transmission lines aren't built at a rate that matches energy demand. A growing number of data center operations are adopting fuel cells to generate on-site power without reliance on the grid. This distributed generation adds new power supply and, unlike conventional generators, puts quiet, clean fuel cell generators on-site that consume relatively inexpensive fuel.

      Exploring Microsoft's Carbon Price and Its 5 Steps to Carbon Neutrality

      The number of companies taking tangible steps to prepare for and prosper in a lower-carbon economy is growing -- even absent a national carbon tax or cap-and-trade regime. Their actions speak much louder .... To help ensure access to power for its large data center servers near San Antonio, Microsoft purchased RECs in signing a 20-year wholesale power agreement to for electricity from a 110 megawatt wind farm near Fort Worth – the Keechi Wind Project – set to open in 2015.

    6. 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,
