Data center efficiency - the good, the bad and the way too hot
Avoiding crisis in the rain-forest
Meat Cast Ah, data center efficiency. The big vendors have embraced this topic like an admin embraces a bag of Doritos.
Luckily, we're here to separate fact from fiction. Episode 5 of Semi-Coherent Computing has Chris Hipp and me interview Rumsey Engineers founder Peter Rumsey. The folks at Rumsey Engineers know their stuff, having built data centers for the likes of Bank of America, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs and the University of California at San Diego's Supercomputer facility.
Peter and Chris have been locked into green computing, power consumption issues and unique cooling techniques for years. In this show, they share a bit of wisdom and set the record straight as to which vendors, energy concerns and standards bodies have their acts together.
This is a must listen episode for anyone in the data center realm that has power consumption or infrastructure design as a concern. So go ahead and tune in to Episode 5 - code-named the Gelsinger Co-Efficient.
The curious will find Rumsey Engineers here.
