Green Data Centers and Clouds Shared by JamesRichard
As well the course will discuss the impact of California’s new cap and trade program and the proposed carbon tax systems to be implemented in several states. Business case analysis will be provided on the aspects and cost savings of various green data center architectures.
Why should you attend: Data centers and corporate clouds can represent up to 50% of the electrical energy costs for an organization. As CFOs start to realize that the IT department is responsible for the one of the largest cost centers in many organizations there is increased pressure for CIOs to find ways to reduce the energy consumption of their data center and/or clouds. In addition several states such as California, Oregon, Washington etc are planning to introduce cap and trade or carbon taxes which will further significantly increase the cost of operating data centers and clouds in those states. As well new SEC rules require that corporations disclose their liability in terms of exposure to climate change and the increased likelihood of storms and droughts. Hurricane Sandy was a wakeup call to the data center industry. Several data centers were knocked up in the New York area, which in turn caused major economic damage to the companies whose servers were hosted in their data centers.
