With the explosion of online services and cloud computing, the rapid scale out of IT and IT infrastructures needs to grow at a pace that meets the needs of the businesses while maintaining both cost and resource efficiencies. Energy efficiency in the data center can drive down costs and minimize the environmental impact of operations. In this webcast, we discuss what Microsoft has learned as it implements disruptive, energy-efficient computing ideas in its own data center operations. These energy-efficient computing ideas should change data center designs at Microsoft and across the IT industry. We provide many examples that illustrate some of the key elements of this data center transformation, including outside air cooling.
