Re: Using Pre-Configured Cabinets and Systems to Expand the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/84...
"Agreed. It's an incredibly smart approach to expansion. The systems are basically 'plug-and-play'. I'd have to test them out a bit to make sure they are actually 'plug-and-play' (remember the first iteration of PnP from Microsoft?) but I think the approach is a solid one." - Eric D. Brown

Re: Bringing the Power Plant into the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/83...
"Agreed. The same thing was said about 'batteries' / "fuel cells' powering automobiles and now we have electric cars." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Bringing the Power Plant into the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/83...
"I'm waiting to see a production version of something using data center to create energy. It makes perfect sense but I haven't seen anything outside of academia and research." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Bringing the Power Plant into the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/83...
"Great pointers to some interesting tech for energy. I'll be watching the fuel cell developments." - Eric D. Brown

Re: Microsoft Doubles Down on the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/80...
"I agree with this. Similarly to other big companies, the move to renewables and 'green' is part PR move and part smart business move." - Eric D. Brown

Re: How Well Are You Managing Your Data Center? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/69...
"While they may not be worried about it, they should be. As @TArmerdingII says: They need to be thinking about energy from an environmental standpoint. I'm not a die-hard environmentalist but I can tell you that I see the values in being more 'green', especially in areas like data center energy." - Eric D. Brown
Re: How Well Are You Managing Your Data Center? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/69...
"While there may be retirement of older, less efficient servers I think there are more bare-metal servers being installed for virtualization which are then being utilized at a much higher rate (70 to 80% utilization rate). I can see this driving more energy consumption." - Eric D. Brown
Re: The Majority of Organizations Are Expanding Data Centers - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/62...
"Good point Pete. IoT will force organizations to start looking at other approaches (cloud, shared DC's, etc)." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Apple’s Focus on The Optimal Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/74...
"I argue regularly with a friend who claims that 'good enough' is never 'good enough'. It is funny that he can't see how much effort he expends on trying to be perfect when in reality his approach to his job/life/family is usually 10x better than most other people's." - Eric D. Brown
Re: More Ways to Increase Data Center Efficiency - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/79...
"That's a very good question. Can that heat be 'converted' into some other form of energy and/or used in some other manner (e..g, heating a building during winter, etc)?" - Eric D. Brown

Re: Microsoft Doubles Down on the Data Center - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/80...
"Nice find on this story Karen. As @Joel Shore says, I think Microsoft is looking for the next 'big' area...and the use of efficient and effective energy management (via the grid management) is one that has been overlooked for many years." - Eric D. Brown

Re: Data Center Priorities: What Technology Brings Value to the Business? - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/77...
""shouldn't the lists be the same" --- Yes. I think they should be. Things that 'drive value' for an organization should also be the things are that are offering competitive advantage for the business." - Eric D. Brown
Re: Three Ways to Increase Data Center Efficiency - http://www.strategicdatacenter.com/75...
"Good write-up Gene. The only concern that I see with virtualization is that it is taking utilization of servers from low teen's to the 70 and 80% range. This may not be a big issue if we can replace multiple servers with VM's on one virtualized server. Personally, I've seen virtualization drive dramatic cost savings all around but I'm still a bit concerned that people see the approach as a 'sure thing' when it comes to savings - and that isn't always the case." - Eric D. Brown
