      Microsoft begins research project aimed at hydrogen fuel cells

      Microsoft has launched a new research project aimed at exploring the use of fuel cells in date centers. These fuel cells would power the data centers, making them less of an energy burden on power grids and also making them more environmentally friendly. Microsoft believes that fuel cell technology will change the way data centers are powered, especially as the energy structure of much of the world begins to change.

    4. Newark Data Center report shows it to be "clean but not green"

      Newark Data Center report shows it to be "clean but not green"

      Nearly 200 people packed a Newark City Council meeting Monday night to hear if the proposed Newark Data Center is environmentally sound. Council members heard the details of a third party report on the proposed Data Center. The Data Center (TDC) would be constructed on the University of Delaware's Science Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) campus. The center would make its own power by constructing a 279-megawatt combined heat and power plant on site. Supporters of the plant tout the jobs it would create in Delaware.

      What's happening in data center energy management

      New equipment, tools and business strategies will rein in run-away IT energy costs, the biggest operating expense in the data center. Data center energy management requires a multi-pronged approach: power-sipping hardware, tools that generate a clear depiction of energy use and expose areas where changes will pay off, and business strategies that bring in the right energy control products with the best return on investment (ROI).

      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?

      The Apple of the Planet's Eye

      If, perchance, you have the opportunity to read the long list of health benefits from eating an apple a day, then for sure you’ll have an apple on your table every morning. It is a remarkable fruit that helps with almost every organ, crack, and crevice throughout the human body by curbing cancer, parkinsonism, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, gallstones, hemorrhoids, liver problems, cataracts, and it even helps whiten teeth (sounds like the polar opposite of fast-talk warnings on TV ads for medicine). Why eat anything else?
