Happy New Year!
As we start the New Year there are many who look at 2009 as a year to forget. StorageMojo has his top 2009 stories post, but what I like best is his last points.
The StorageMojo take
Like a termite-riddled barn after a heavy snow, the Great Recession is seeing old models collapse. We can’t afford to keep doing what we’ve been doing.
As the new models emerge, competition will grow in the hot areas, leading to even more innovation in the next 3 years than we’ve seen in the last 5. More on that in a future post.
I agree 2010 will have even more innovation.
So far most of the green data center efforts have held on to old models and tried to make them greener. Now it is time to cast off the old models and look for new models to be green when resource consumption (carbon impact and water) is a top priority.
As the year develops I’ll be making announcements of changes GreenM3 is making in what I write about. 2010 is going to be an exciting year.
