Free Webcast: Grow a Greener Data Center
If you’re looking to build more efficient and environmentally friendly data centers, you won’t want to miss this free webcast by Douglas Alger on how to Grow a Greener Data Center. Conventional data centers can have a huge environmental impact, using massive amounts of energy and water, emitting pollutants, and discarding huge quantities of machine waste. Their insatiable demand for energy and often inefficient designs make Data Centers expensive to operate and prime targets for future environmental regulation.
Fortunately, it’s now possible to design a data center that consumes fewer resources, costs less money to run, has a longer usable lifespan, and can even highlight a company’s social responsibility. Douglas Alger makes the business case for greening Data Centers and presents technologies, design strategies, and operational approaches to help any company improve the energy efficiency and “eco-friendliness” of their IT hosting environments.
