Wanted: Ideas for Energy Efficient Data Centers

As I mentioned in my blog last week, there are many ways for people to get involved in helping create a more sustainable future. My family and I had a great time “powering down” during worldwide Earth Hour last Saturday night. We turned off (and unplugged) the TV and cable box, turned off all the lights in our home, and played the game “charades” by candle light. We also talked about how important it is to conserve energy, every day, every hour – and how the sum of many small actions can make a big difference. Comment below if you want to share how you spent Earth Hour!

Intel has created an opportunity for IT professionals to get involved in creating a lower carbon future, by sharing their best ideas on how to conserve energy in Data Centers: the Data Center Efficiency Challenge. We announced this video contest earlier this week, coincident with the launch of the new Intel┬« Xeon┬« 5500 Processor Series. For more details, check out the contest’s Facebook page.

Are you a college student? Reminder, there are just 2 weeks left to enter the Power Down for The Planet video contest, hosted by Climate Savers.

Good luck to all you eco-minded college students and IT professionals, we look forward to seeing your great ideas on video!
