As technology progresses, energy and data center efficiency become a very important consideration. Not only is data center efficiency a crucial factor to a sustainable planet, but it can also save you from increasing costs of energy usage. This year provided some great insight into the importance of data center efficiency. Let’s take a moment to look back on some of our content surrounding this topic.
Also on Intel® Chip Chat we learned about SUE: A New Way to Measure Datacenter Efficiency where Mike Patterson and Winston Saunders, who both work on datacenter efficiency at Intel, talk about developing a new measurement to go hand-in-hand with PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) called SUE (Server Usage Effectiveness).
As each day passes, Green IT becomes a more important topic in the technology industry. Moving into 2012, what are some of your thoughts on the future of efficiency?
