    2. 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 ...

    3. Data centers escape UK floods, but for how long? by Peter Judge

      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.

    4. 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 ...

    5. Microsoft pushes on-site generation forward by Peter Judge

      Microsoft pushes on-site generation forward by Peter Judge
      Two years ago, when Microsoft proposed data plants that were self-powered and independent of the grid, it sounded a bit fanciful. The idea was to co-locate a data center with a waste processing plant, and use the biogas that comes from the rotting waste. We get a lot of these ideas. Only a couple of years earlier, HP had got some admiring, and some mocking, coverage for proposing cow manure ...

    6. The Blood of Our Electronics by Peter Judge

      The Blood of Our Electronics by Peter Judge
      Intels CEO Brian Krzanich had plenty of interesting things to say at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this month - but he had a big, and very welcome, surprise for the Green Tech community. His keynote included lots of technology aimed at the phones and embedded devices the CES audience was there to hear about, and nothing directly about data centers. But anyone keen to reduce the impact of tech on ...

    7. Let's Drink to the success of liquid cooled supercomputers - by Peter Judge

      Let's Drink to the success of liquid cooled supercomputers - by Peter Judge
      In the busy period before Christmas, theGreen500list slipped past me. As we toast the New Year, it seems appropriate to raise a glass to the winners - since they are virtually all cooled by liquid. None of the liquid involved is remotely festive, of course. Its been many years since Alan Turing (pretty much seriously)suggested using ginin EDSAC, an early computer at Cambridge. Gin has a mixture of alcohol and ...

    8. Hang on: What does all this efficiency mean? By Peter Judge

      Hang on:  What does all this efficiency mean?  By Peter Judge
      Data center experts are rightly focused on delivering more and more efficient IT services from better and better managed facilities, but is it really saving the planet? A statistic I heard at Londons Data Center Dynamics show makes me wonder. Youve all heard of Psys Gangnam Style video. Most of you will have forgotten it, along with its increasingly desperate spin-offs and parodies, and wisely ignored the efforts of Psy ...

    9. 2013: A Year When Governments Changed Data Centers? By Peter Judge

      2013:  A Year When Governments Changed Data Centers?  By Peter Judge
      Heres something unexpected. Looking back over green data centers in 2013, the one theme that stands out, for me is government involvement. What? Am I serious? Governments dont understand data centers in the first place. And when it comes to global warming - the reason for greening those data centers - they have their heads firmly in the sand. And they are unlikely to move them from that position, because the boots ...
