In this month's TechNet magazine, Microsoft have published an article on building a green data centre and reminded us of Vista's power configurability.
Rather than just one article (compared to almost zero until recently), Microsoft note in this month's edition three of their green IT resources:
- How to build a green data centre - a new article in TechNet this month covering energy monitoring systems,
- Understanding the energy savings of Windows Vista - a whitepaper covering how to calculate energy savings using Windows Vista power features such as centralised management but with per machine configurability.
- Why PCs should get more sleep - a press release from March 2007 relating to Windows Vista.
In addition The Australian recently reported the green competition between Windows and Linux is increasing with Linux promoting their "Green Linux Initiative" aimed at improving power management in their operating systems, while Microsoft were interviewed by searchdatacenter.com to promote the Windows 2008 power management features.
