      The Data Center as a Power Generator?

      Conventional wisdom holds that the modern data center is a giant energy vacuum, sucking in larger and larger shares of available power and kicking dangerous emissions into the atmosphere in return. In this case, conventional wisdom is not wrong. But those who have taken a hard look at the current data/energy paradigm are starting to ask a very basic question: Does it necessarily have to be this way?

Why eat anything else?
