Microsoft plays an important role as a board member company of The Green Grid, the premier global organization focused on improving resource efficiency in information technology and data centers. As such, I’d like to encourage you to attend The Green Grid Forum 2013 on March 5-6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.
This conference will feature 30+ sessions on financial and operational efficiencies, the value of collaborative regulatory activity, the opportunities and challenges of big data, and software and IT efficiencies. This includes topics such as carbon regulation and taxation, the data center maturity model, the human face of big data, member case studies, etc. Plus, there will be many opportunities to network with data center resource efficiency experts.
In particular, I’m very excited to be presenting on the critical role of software in increasing the utilization and energy productivity of data centers. While this is a topic I’ve been writing about for quite some time, it is a relatively new area of focus for The Green Grid.
Microsoft is able to offer a 10% discount off standard pricing to our customers who are attending The Green Grid Forum for the first time. This discount will be offered to the first 20 people who register with this discount code: 13tgg10. If you’ve attended The Green Grid Forum previously, you can still register for $250 if your company is a member of The Green Grid or $500 if your company is a non-member.
More information regarding sessions and logistics at the Forum is included on the event page.
I look forward to seeing you there!
