Sun's Santa Clara Datacenter Wins Eco Award!

The Uptime Institute recognized Sun with a Green Enterprise IT Award for the our work on our energy-sipping Santa Clara datacenter, as outlined in the whitepaper - "Aligning Business Organizations: Sun's approach for building energy-efficient datacenters."

Dean Nelson, Sun senior director of global lab and datacenter design services, accepted the award
tonight and provided an overview of Sun's eco responsibility efforts to Ken Brill, Executive Director of the Uptime Institute, in a podcast you can find here.

The official award name is a bit of a tongue-twister - Best-in-Class Implementation Winner for the 2008 Uptime Institute Green Enterprise IT Awards in the category of Energy Efficient IT Hardware Deployment. Click here for full details on the awards.

Sun Shines on Earth Day

Today Sun was honored by InfoWorld as one of the Green 15: companies and organizations that have undertaken the best green-tech-oriented projects in the past year.  Sun was selected for our datacenter consolidation project, focused on Santa Clara, Calif, Bangalore, India and Blackwater, UK.  The Santa Clara datacenter alone reduced power capacity demand by 75 percent.  And the project saved Sun $1.1M per year in energy costs.  Check out the article here.

This morning I got an email from our vice president of eco responsibilty Dave Douglas that was an inspiring start to Earth Day.  Dave says that he's approached weekly by employees at Sun wondering if the eco team is hiring.  And he tells them, "you already have an eco job!"  If we each bring our personal passion for eco responsibilty to work, we can look at all of our projects and responsibilities in a new green light.  Dave wrote about this idea in Environmental Leader a couple weeks ago.  Read his column here.
