Green Grid reveals technology roadmap

Data Collection

* Data Center Standards and Metrics Inventory (Q3'07) -- this study will document existing standards and metrics for energy efficiency, identify coverage gaps and make recommendations for future development.

* The Green Grid Metrics: Describing Data Center Power Efficiency (Q3'07) -- this study will be an update to The Green Grid's existing study on data center efficiency metrics and will look at workload classification through a data center segmentation model.

* Operationalizing Energy-Efficiency Data Collection (Q4'07) -- this study will identify the requirements for collecting and aggregating data center power consumption data.

Data Assessment

* Data Center Efficiency Baseline Market Study (Q3'07) -- this study on the current state of the industry will allow The Green Grid to identify key factors driving companies to take action on data center power consumption and the challenges in doing so. Collecting and analyzing this data will help to provide companies with a baseline to compare their own initiatives, goals and performance.

* Operational Best Practices (Q4'07) -- these studies will focus on right-sizing the data center and will outline best practices in the adoption of virtualization and consolidation technologies.

* Database for Data Center Performance (Q4'07) -- The Green Grid will begin development work on a database focused on data center characteristics and performance schema.

Technology Proposals

* Initial Technology Roadmap (Q4'07) -- this roadmap provides an initial assessment of existing and emerging technologies affecting data center efficiency and performance, taking into consideration both return on investment and risk to the end user.

* Power Distribution Options for the Data Center Study (Q3'07) -- this study will look at the qualitative advantages and disadvantages of data center power distribution configurations.

* Cooling Options Study (Q4'07) -- this study will focus on the qualitative advantages and disadvantages of data center cooling architectures.

Avastu Blog is migrating to; 1st Jan 2009 live


I will send out emails personally to those who are using my link(s) on their sites.

Thanks much for your co-operation and hope you enjoy the new site and its cool new features :-)

Not like the site is unlive or something..on the contrary, its beginning to get a lot of attention already. Well most of the work is done, you don't have to worry about anything though:

What won't change

Links/Referrals: I will be redirecting the links (all links which you may have cross-posted) to - so you don't have to do anything in all your posts and links. Although, I would urge however that you do change the permalinks, especially on your blogs etc yourselfThis blog is not going away anywhere but within a few months, I will consider discontinuing its usage. I won't obviously do …

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
