    2. Why Greenpeace Likes Google, Not Facebook by Peter Judge

      Why Greenpeace Likes Google, Not Facebook by Peter Judge

      Data center energy use is an issue on two levels. Energy is a major cost, and everyone wants their data centers deliver as many MIPs (or LOLs or OMGs) per dollar as they possibly can. That means reducing the electricity bill wherever possible, and getting the best MIPs per MegaWatt-hour (MWh). But also, energy is political. Big companies with a public profile to maintain need to be seen to be doing the right thing. Environmental activists want everyone to do the right thing by the planet - so they put pressure on the most public targets, to get visible public action and responses which promote the kinds of action they want.

      Cloud Energy Use - Don't Forget The Wireless Network by Peter Judge

      There’s good news this week on data center energy use by the giants. Facebook has started to post energy (and water) efficiency figures for its data centers on public dashboards, and Google is successfully pushing providers like Duke Energy to use more renewable energy. But there’s been a big question raised about the energy use of the cloud as a whole.

    4. Yes, European data centers ARE moving north by Peter Judge

      Yes, European data centers ARE moving north by Peter Judge

      A couple of weeks ago, I said that increasing energy costs in Europe would drive data centers northwards. I can’t claim any great predictive skill, because it’s an obvious conclusion - but I have figures this week which back it up. In the Northern countries, the climate is better for data centers, because you don’t need to spend energy cooling your servers down. It’s also got a lot of energy which is cheap - and also renewable. A lot of it comes from hydroelectric sources.

      Summit In The Sky Solves The Wrong Problems by Peter Judge

      On June 12, a plane will take off from San Francisco, carrying 100 Silicon Valley types - with a mission. The so-called “Summit in the Sky”, or Ungrounded, brings together CEOs, venture capitalists and thinkers from California, and seals them up together for an 11 hour flight to London. On the way they have a job. They have to think together in a “hackathon” and come up with solutions to a global problem. On landing, they hot-foot it to a conference, where an audience is waiting for their answers.

    6. What's Gas Got To Do With Data Centers? by Peter Judge

      What's Gas Got To Do With Data Centers? by Peter Judge

      This week - it’s all about gas! In Britain, newspaper headlines predicted imminent rationing of gas. To explain to US readers, we are talking about natural gas here, not gasolene, and the word “rationing” is a powerful keyword for tabloid headlines. We Brits have long memories, and it conjures up images of World War II shortages.
