5 Green Data Center Startups You Need to Know

This week we’ll be kicking off the GigaOM Network’s (our parent company) third annual event focused on cloud computing and Internet infrastructure, Structure 2010, in San Francisco. In honor of the big event, which will feature speakers like Paul Maritz, the CEO of VMWare, Marc Benioff, the CEO of Salesforce.com, and Paul Sagan, the CEO of Akamai, we’ve decided to round up 5 green data center startups to watch.

I had high hopes looking at the list, but I found only one I would agree with.

2). SeaMicro: Low-power server maker SeaMicro is stealthy no longer. Last week the under-the-radar Santa Clara, Calif.-based company, which is backed by at least $25 million from venture firms Khosla Ventures and Draper Fisher Jurvetson, finally unveiled its server technology that consumes a quarter of the power of a regular server but packs more than 2,000 CPU cores and costs $139,000. The startup uses Atom chips and its own specially designed silicon to manage the networking. The bet is that Internet bigwigs like Amazon and Facebook will be willing to buy servers from a new startup to save on the ever-increasing energy costs of computing.

You can go through the list, but I would have reworded the post. 

Here are 5 exhibitors at Structuretone 2010 who have green data center offerings.

Here were a few comments that think there are others

    Not sure how http://www.core4sys.com didn’t make this list – with >80% proven energy savings vis-a-vis incumbent Liebert/Chilled Water systems, it should have been a mention.
