From the Register:Big Blue puts power-guzzling data centres on a diet
and the NYT:
"I.B.M. is beginning a $1-billion-a-year investment program intended to double the energy efficiency of its computer data centers and those of its corporate customers.
Many technology companies are trying to curb the runaway energy consumption of data centers, the modern engine rooms that power the Internet and corporate computing.
But I.B.M. is the largest single operator of data centers worldwide, and analysts say the company’s initiative, which is being announced today, is a significant step in deploying a broad range of technologies to tackle the problem."
This will be an interesting one to watch.
