Urs Hoelzle, keynote Google Efficiency Data Center Event

Today I am at Google’s Efficiency Data Centers Summitt. There are 175 registered attendees.


Graphic Data Center

Urs Hoelzle kicked off the event discussing how Google has focused for many years on making its data centers efficient, thanking the efforts by many on the years of work to allow this event to occur.  I wrote about Google’s PUE disclosure was part of an uncloaking, and had the pleasure of meeting Urs in person before his keynote.

Today’s agenda besides industry presenters will include Google sharing some of its best practices for energy efficiency, new information on PUE, a video of the data center summit will be available Monday on Youtube.

As the day unfolds we can hope Google finds the event has the desired results so they will share more and more.
