Hi. Welcome to Data Center Huddle.
Data Center Huddle is an educational blog structured to provide insight on the best ways to reduce electricity and operating costs in the data center without compromising its essential services. With the rise of mobile computing and online services, data center energy use is going to eat up a significant portion of the US and global energy pie. We all should be aware of this unique sector of energy consumption and implement the right technologies and best practices to allow for sustainable growth while still getting the benefit of our digital services.
I hope Data Center Huddle provides you with something fascinating that you can discuss with your friends and colleagues but also helps you take actionable steps to reduce energy use in a data center that you know of. Here is a bit of background about me.
