Energy conservation is important too…

I am delighted to see this joint program between Sun and PG&E:

Sun Announces First-of-its-Kind Energy Rebate With PG&E

Space, power, cooling and budget are the growing constraints for every datacenter. In August of this year, Sun announced a first-of-its-kind energy rebate for its Sun Fire T1000 and T2000 servers with California utility PG&E. As part of PG&E’s Non Residential Retrofit program, customers replacing existing equipment with these eco responsible servers can receive a cash savings between $700-$1000 per server or up to 35 percent when combined with the Sun Upgrade Advantage Program(3). This is the first time a public utility company has offered a rebate for server upgrades, helping customers move to more efficient technology and easing their datacenter constraints.

Not only that, the Tx000 series servers consume far less power than competing systems and provide many times the performance on multi-threaded work loads, what’s not to like? Kudos to PG&E and Sun, you’re making a difference.
