Google Efficient Data Centers Summit

Here is a cool event coming up.  I’ll be there, and it will be a good place to catch up with many people I’ve interviewed in the past.

I am sure Google is already at capacity, but their event will be available on YouTube.


Please join Google and other members of the IT industry to discuss best practices for building and measuring data center efficiency.

Saving resources such as electricity and water is not just good for the environment, it makes good business sense too. Being "green" reduces operating costs and can keep our industry competitive; it is this economic advantage that makes efficiency truly sustainable. Join us to learn more about how Google builds and designs data centers, and to share your own opinions and ideas.

A video of the summit will be posted to YouTube shortly after the event.
