For our readers in the New York area who are interested in the subject of green data center design the Green Grid is hosting an exclusive high level industry discussion in New York, NY on October 2nd, 2009. The event will feature a prominent industry discussion and forum on green data center design.

The Green Grid is a consortium of many of the world’s leading tech and telecom companies with the goal of promoting efficient green data center designs and technologies that use less energy and water as well as recycle the computing and support equipment used by data centers.

The Green Grid consortium plans to create a “top-to-bottom” design guide for building energy-efficient data centers, as well as new metrics for estimating data center productivity. It is a good bet that what the consortium is terming “Data Center 2.0” design will be at the top of this event’s discussion agenda.

A Call to Action for Data Center Efficiency

The Green Grid, in collaboration with the NYSE Euronext will be hosting a prominent industry discussion and forum event at the NYSE Euronext facilities in New York City. Exclusive panel discussions will foster conversation around the business impact of data center energy efficiency in the U.S. and abroad. You will learn from first-hand accounts how data center efficiency is driving economic benefits for businesses of all types and sizes. To conclude this historic event, The Green Grid will end the day with the ringing of the NYSE closing bell.
Leading end users, technology vendors, government institutions and enterprise companies will be represented on the panels and as part of the networking audience. Space is limited so attendance is open to two participants from each member company of The Green Grid or NYSE Euronext.
