Google is hosting a the Efficient Data Center summit today at their Mountain View facility.  It looks like its going to be as great event and I fully expect we’ll see more detail than ever on how high scale operators run their facilities. But, in addition, one of the goals of the event is to talk about what the industry as a whole can do to increase data center efficiency. It looks like a good event.

I just flew back from China a day ago and, having spent more than a day in an airplane has left me with an upper respritory issue. But, I’ll work through that and, baring my voice going away entirely, I’ll be presenting at 1pm.  I expect I’ll also blog interesting points over the course of the day as well.
