Here’s an announcement that should prove beneficial to all parties involved by putting together two forward thinking groups that will hopefully serve as an example of how collaboration breeds progress. The Green Grid is working towards increased data center efficiency along with standardized measurements that are adopted by the industry, and Data Center Pulse is the industry’s users. In less than a year and a half, Data Center Pulse has done an amazing job of pulling together data center professionals who influence decisions within data centers and trends in the industry as a whole. They work hard to enforce their “no vendor” rule which helps keep discussions as unbiased as possible so people interact without hidden agendas, and they clearly understand the value of peers helping peers and shaping an industry together. Here is the article written by Justin Lee form Web Host Industry Review.
