We all love the convenience of great IT, wonderful smart devices and the chance to access the world 24/7. But that love comes with a price–perhaps as all love does. And that is, we soak up a huge amount of power and create a lot of carbon as we carry on our worldwide conversations.
That is why the Green Grid was born. Its co-founder and President, Roger Tipley and newly appointed Treasure, Jason Dodier, our guests today are two of the experts and members grappling with this very important problem and, fortunately, bringing solutions to the market place.
In essence each of us has a data center. At home it might include more consumer electronics than mainframes and blades. But that does not make it any less critical for us to get smart on how we visualizer our world. Sure, Roger and Jason, along with the rest of the Green Grid team focus on helping companies get IT friendly and efficient. But we can all learn from this conversation. We should, in fact, all learn. Burning excess fuel is bad for our budgets and the planet. It makes us all less profitable. It dirties our air and communities. Let’s follow Green Grid’s lead, so well laid out in this show, and quickly get down the road of smart it and improve our role in the digital economy.
