There are a lot of servers out there… I wrote an article recently which references the 2,000 data centers run by the US federal government. They’ve decided to reduce that amount by 40%.

It is interesting to step back and consider how we’ve ended up with so many servers, and what causes continual growth in server ownership. Clearly the US federal government, and I suspect most of us, are reaching a tipping point where some introspection occurs. A pause for thought… ”That much? Really? I’m sure last years utility bill wasn’t that high… OK, let’s work on reducing this.”

You can read the full article where I ponder how efficient IT applies to servers:
