SunMD, CeBIT, and the Ultimate Eco-Friendly Data Center
By pmonday on Mar 11, 2008
Hanover, Germany hosted CeBIT and the 495,000 attendees that made there way through exhibitions and the entire conference.
Continuing the eco-friendly theme of SunMD stops, the CeBIT installation had the power generator on the semi replaced with a transformer that attached to Solar power. Yupp, a Solar-powered SunMD unit!
The first day of CeBIT (March 4th) featured a little snow and time a Breakfast TV segment. The local and national news carried a second spot filmed on Thursday.
Companies from cars (Volkswagon) to planes (Lufthansa) stopped by to see SunMD.
SunSpots continue to be a huge draw to Sun's demonstrations (despite their tiny stature). The coupling of SunMD and SunSpots are definitely a 1-2 punch. Keep in mind the SunSpot developer kits are available and are, of course, open source.
