Friday data center tidbits.

First up today is an article about greenwashing. Just looking at the PR releases flowing in the Twitter stream shows not only egregious greenwash (HP’s Wynyard data center starts off air cooled, then wind cooled, then GLACIAL wind cooled) but high levels of cloudwash as well (I define cloudwash as the attachment of the term “cloud” to things having little or nothing whatsoever to do with cloud computing). Come on folks, can the BS and actually DO something worth the claim!

Next up is the piece about Washington’s data center tax giveaway passing. I hope they have better luck than South Carolina did with Google.

Email or call me or visit the SwiftWater Telecom web site for cloud computing services and green data center services (without the tax handouts).
