    2. There is no magic metric for data center efficiency by Peter Judge

      There is no magic metric for data center efficiency by Peter Judge
      Its good to see that Facebook has open-sourced its dashboards for data center efficiency, so anyone can show the public how well their data center is doing - but it is happening while the global industry is struggling to find better measurements than the ones Facebook is using. PUE (power usage effectiveness) and WUE (water usage effectiveness), as displayed in Facebooks dashboards, were developed by the Green Grid as simple measures ...

      Electric Car Batteries Could Get A Second Life In Data Centers by Peter Judge
      A European project which proposes to make urban data centers greener has a surprising component - second hand electric car batteries. The GreenDataNet consortium has 2.9 million from the European Commission and a wide brief - to develop technologies that will lighten the load of data centers on the grid, moving them to 80 percent renewable electricity, and tightening their efficiency from a PUE of 1.6-2.0 down to a ...

      Facebook in Sweden: Data Centers Go Flat-Pack by Peter Judge
      Facebook itself made the connection between its new generation of modular data centers and Ikeas furniture, and countless websites made the most of it. It was an absolute gift because it is true: Facebook is using flat-pack techniques to build its new data in Sweden, the home of flat-pack furniture. But the connection between data centres and flat-pack furniture goes both ways. While Facebooks data center goes Ikea, In high-tech ...

    5. Can data centers fit in with demand reduction? by Peter Judge

      Can data centers fit in with demand reduction? by Peter Judge
      Energy policy in the UK is developing very slowly, but there are signs of new things happening. Data centers may have to act cleverly to benefit from the next stages, however. After the floods and bad weather, there were calls for the government to acknowledge the role of manmade climate change, and beef up its policies in the area. Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron said he very much suspects that ...

    6. Apps are good, but climate change needs action by Peter Judge

      Apps are good, but climate change needs action by Peter Judge
      Big problems like climate change and energy supply dont seem to be getting the input they need. There seems to be a lot of thought going into short-term, small scale answers, while the big questions are left hanging. The floods in the UK did get a high-tech response: Londons Tech City spent one Sunday making apps. The Government opened up its flood data, and developers from Google, Facebook, Twitter and ...

      Data centers escape UK floods, but for how long? by Peter Judge
      In 2012, Hurricane Sandy put climate change on the agenda - with President Obama and New Yorks Mayor Bloomberg both citing it as a cause of the destructive weather. The storm and floods also put several data centers out of action - at least temporarily - and tested how well many others were prepared for potential disaster.

    8. How EU regulations choked on backup diesels by Peter Judge

      How EU regulations choked on backup diesels by Peter Judge
      Data centers have back-up generators, and those generators generally burn diesel. This is a small part of the emissions of a data center, but its possible to get it out of proportion. This can be a sticking point for environmentalists - and apparently for government regulators too. A couple of years back, campaigners in Quincy. Washington got concerned (and got the New York Times writing) about emissions from the back-up diesels ...
