For the same reason, I am fascinated by Datacenters21, which is scheduled to take place in San Jose from September 16-18th. The event is sponsored by the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories, in Partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Save Energy Now and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Pre-conference registration ends September 10.
The DataCenters 21 program is part of a much larger event, Labs21, and was developed with support from the Critical Facilities Round Table, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, the Green Grid, Pacific Gas & Electric, and the University of California Office of the President. What I find most interesting is that an event that focuses on the future of the nation's laboratories includes the potential of its data centers to help its program for the future and also puts data center issues in front of a broad audience.
