Microsoft embracing energy efficiency in big way

Microsoft is looking beyond its data centers and striving to make energy efficiency a cornerstone of all of its operations, its director of energy strategy.

Microsoft embracing energy efficiency in big way

Speaking at Data Center World Spring 2013, a conference being held at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Microsoft’s Brian Janous said the centralization of data in the cloud, is driving efficiencies in energy usage.

"And there’s probably no other industry where energy is more critical,” he said.

Microsoft's corporate vision is to evolve from a traditional software company to one providing a wide array of online services, and that means dramatically scaling up its data center footprint.

Janous told the audience that based on this experience, he encourages all data center operators to think outside the box about both energy use and the kinds of energy they use.

At Microsoft that thinking has resulted in a five-step plan to solidify the company's energy efficiency:

  • Co-location;
  • A focus on density.
  • Containment.
  • Growth through deployment of modular additions.
  • Integration.

“On a macro level, I think of the development of the electricity sector and over the last 100-150 years, it developed as starting as bunch of components, and then became centralized in plants. This is what we’re seeing in data centers these days,” Janous said.

Revenue Sharing Lesson 1: 3 main reasons for the failure of a Revenue Sharing System Reason 1: Virtual Fund Explosive Growth . ( Instant Death ) Now no matter what any RevShare admin promises you, any system promising you they can provide a constant reliable return on investment at high then 133 % on basically promising you something they dont have. No system higher then 133 % is sustainable without additional sources of revenue. NO SYSTEM! Unless they are giving away 10's of thousands of real dollars (no one does that). Now our system is 100 % backed on real money. There is almost zero virtual funds in the system period. The biggest mistake developers make when they get into Revenue Sharing is not properly understand the math. Reason 2: Commission/Bonus Excess ( Death by hit and run ) Now most developers completely lose site of the fact commissions have to come from somewhere. Commissions are virtual funds in any system. An excess of virtual funds compounds like compounding interest... slowly destroying a system. Allowing commissions to be deposited directly to cash balance for withdrawal is an instant death sentence... It will rapidly deplete the fund. The commissions and extra bonuses must be put towards the purchase of shares. The proper parcelling out of new money can greatly reduce the impact of these virtual funds thus extending the life of the fund. Reason 3: Corrupt Developers ( Death by greed ) Yup I said it, This is reason number 3 and its just sad but it is a reality. DAPS is the culmination of my life's work. It took me 32 years to get here, and nothing is going to stop it now! Believe that ! .Advertising
