Giving away eco-friendly, credit-crunch-busting servers!

Probably the number one question I get asked when out and about representing the StartUp Essentials program is, "Would Sun give me a free server?"

Whether this is said 'tongue-in-cheek' or not, I'm happy to say that it does happen...as blogged by Jonathan Schwartz.

In December 2008 Seedcamp along with Sun Microsystems and Orange hosted a competition for startups at LeWeb Paris.  30 startups from around the world were shortlisted and given 7 minutes each to present their solution and company plan, and then judged on various criteria.

Congratualations to the winners, 

1- Viewdle 

2- Webnode 

3- Zoover 

who each receive one of Sun's technologically advanced severs, as well as having time on the main-stage to showcase their offering. The announcement can be found here.

It's exciting to support and follow the success of the startups in the StartUp Essentials program, which is free and without commitment.

You may also have noticed we added subscription options on the blog, register your interest, stay tuned, and come chat with us at the startup events, we have more to offer and give away!

Server rooms, naked and up-close

Datacentres and server rooms are normally reserved for the people who run them, and with the growing popularity of cloud-computing, it is less likely you will get behind the scenes.

To a 'geek' it's pretty exciting to see what actually runs your on-demand TV service, a new service, or even your own startup.

The picture to the right is the server space that the BBC uses for it's Redux project, a VoD multi-platform iPlayer solution.

I would like to introduce you also to ServerPorn.org! :-)  Submit your own pics today and share.
