Subject: The Methodology of Sustainable Computing.
Presenters: David Bryan
The U.S. data center industry is in the midst of a major growth period
fueled by increasing demand for data processing and storage. As demands
on data centers increase, and power usage and costs rise, the industry
is looking for ways to increase efficiency. There is significant
potential for energy-efficiency improvements in servers and in data
centers today using methods and technologies currently available.
Sustainable computing is not a hardware choice: it is a methodology. In
situations where ecological concerns and business interests intersect,
there is no single solution that will result in “green computing”, but a
comprehensive approach toward energy efficiency can yield significant
improvements in data center energy usage.
David Bryan is one of the founders of Silicon Mechanics and the
company’s product development visionary. He guided the development of
key innovations, including its online cluster configurator, blade
configurator and dynamic power calculator applications. He holds a BS in
Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington.
