Webhosting firm Macquarie chooses Sun as preferred Data Center provider

Web Web host Macquarie Hosting (http://www.macquarietelecom.com/hosting) has chosen Sun Microsystems as its preferred Data Center Supplier, it was announced yesterday. The company’s move was based on a procurement review considered “predominantly on ‘green’ criteria”. According to the company, the change will result in up to 60% less energy usage.

In a positive step further asserting Macquarie Telecom’s commitment to ‘greening’ its DSD and ISO 27001 certified datacenter, the Intellicentre, the organization has committed to a rolling contract (initially worth $1 million) for the installation of a further 200 Sun Fire X64 Series servers. The move is expected initially to improve efficiency of Macquarie Hosting’s data center energy consumption by more than 650,000 KW per year. This equates to over 600 tons of CO2 emissions, according to Energy Australia.

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
