Cisco has hired one of the founders of the Ã¢â‚¬ËœGreen GridÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Paul Marcoux, to be its new environmental guru.
The Green Grid, is an industry consortium – of which Cisco is a contributing member – dedicated to improving data center power efficiency through the use of agreed metrics. Marcoux was APC’s director of education and training.
The Green data center continues to be a topic of debate and interest, whether you’re talking about it or actively implementing ways of being more energy or cooling efficient with your data center will depend on your business. Implementing such actions as DC power, the lights out data center or reducing KVMs are examples in which you can reduce the operational cost of your data center which has to be a good thing. We need to deliver service absolutely, but if we can spend a little to gain real financial return on investment it can be good operationally and financially.
