DatacenterKnowledge just posted on the Yahoo Factor in data centers referring to Kevin Timmons, Lars Rabbe, Scott Noteboom, and Tom Furlong.
But, after spending the past 3 days chatting with the current Data Center Thought Leadership who were at 7x24 Exchange, I think we would have all had a good laugh. Scott Noteboom is not part of this crowd as once you walk into Apple, you disappear from the data center crowd. Kevin Timmons escaped this situation and is now CTO of Cyrus One and was busy meeting and greeting at 7x24. Tom Furlong was circulating after his presentation on the Open Compute Project and Facebook's data centers. Lars Rabbe is busy flying around the world between Estonia, Palo Alto (Skype bldg), and Redmond (Microsoft HQ).
For your public consumption i found this 2006 ZDNet CIO video where Lars discusses how data centers need to be built differently.
In the transcript which has some character set mapping issues (apostrophes) are lots of mentions of data centers.
Yeh!!! a CIO that talks power efficient data centers.
Here is one of the best comments.
The Green Data Center idea was discussed back in 2006 by Lars. How is that for Thought Leadership?
