I ran into Mazen before he presented his keynote at Gartner DC LV, and we caught up as we hadn’t chatted for a while. I sat up front and created a video of Mazen discussing the process change that eBay made to improve the performance per watt for eBay systems. Sitting with the eBay team we were also able to catch up a bit discussing Olivier Sanche passing away.
Mazen does a good job of explaining what eBay did to change the behaviors in IT to be greener in the data center and reduce watts per transaction by 70%.
I apologize for the video quality as the camera was out of focus in manual focus mode. Here are better pictures with the camera in focus. My Canon 7D rocks, and sometimes it feels like I am carrying rocks in my backpack as it is no light camera.
