365 Main Joins The Green Grid to Advance Energy Efficiency in the Data Center

SAN FRANCISCO, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- 365 Main today announced that it has joined The Green Grid, a global nonprofit consortium of technology companies and professionals dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems.

Formed earlier this year, The Green Grid is committed to driving new user- centric metrics, technology standards and best practices for use by data center managers worldwide. Membership is open to any company developing products and technologies aimed at the data center market, as well as to information technology professionals tasked with data center operations. Member companies currently sitting on the organization's board of directors include HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, AMD, APC, Dell, Rackable Systems, SprayCool, Sun Microsystems and VMware.

The Green Grid's key areas of focus include: -- Defining meaningful, user-centric models and metrics -- Developing standards, measurement methods, processes and new technologies to improve performance against the defined metrics -- Promoting the adoption of energy-efficient standards, processes, measurements and technologies.

Members participate by interacting online, sharing challenges and best practices, attending meetings, and by working to help influence IT policies for better data center efficiency.

365 Main's commitment to energy efficiency

The announcement of 365 Main's membership in The Green Grid is part of the company's broad commitment to energy efficiency. Just last month 365 Main announced it has been recognized by PG&E for its noteworthy energy-reduction accomplishments in its founding San Francisco data center. 365 Main reduced utility power consumption by as much as 12.5 percent during peak summer months in 2006, and is making energy best-practices available to PG&E to share with other data center providers to address rising concerns over data center power consumption.

"The Green Grid understands that energy efficiency in the data center is one of the most significant issues facing technology providers and their customers today, so we are extremely proud to be joining the group," said Chris Dolan, CEO of 365 Main. "We believe we can make a strong contribution right away, because while the consortium has been looking at the data center from a product-by-product level, we can offer our perspective on the whole data center building package. We look forward to actively participating in this tremendously noble organization, and this membership is just another step in a series of energy-efficient moves we are committed to making."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
