I am at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas Nevada. It is a tech conference for SAP users and those associated with SAP users. I personally am not an SAP user but I work in marketing at DataXstream and so there you go- I am here. Attending sessions on Green IT - and it is quite affirming actually. DataXstream offers virtualization to clients and as I keep hearing over and over again in these sessions; Data Centers eat 2% of this nation's power and they eat between 30% and 40% of their respective company's power usage. That is a LOT of electricity. SO if you can reduce that it matters. And virtualization does reduce it. And so, I can go to bed feeling good about what my employer does. Yay me.
