Reducing your Costs and your Carbon Footprint – presentation

I gave a talk at the it@cork Green IT event yesterday entitled “Reducing your Costs and your Carbon Footprint”.

The talk goes into some detail on how Cork Internet eXchange, the cork-based data centre I am a director of, achieves hyper energy efficiency.

It is also worth noting that tomorrow’s OpenCoffee session is in CIX. Hope to see you there.

  1. I would guess the main culprit in these data centres is the cooling systems, thermoelectrics and watercooling may be the answer.

  2. I completely agree with Simon’s statement, it is more than likely that these are the causes.

  3. I’m sure Tom can confirm the details, but in addition to the energy consumption associated with the servers and sheer numbers of workstations, laptops, printers, faxes, copiers, etc. in a typical office building, there are opportunities to look at purchasing policies, hardware upgrade and replacement cycles, recycling of hardware, toners, etc. that can all have a significant impact in reducing a company’s carbon footprint.
