Tuesday data center tidbits: clueless on #cloudcomputing,world class data center cooling (20 years ago)

First up today is reading about Steve Ballmer of Microsoft trying to explain cloud computing to a bunch of CEOs and failing miserably. I don’t know what was more pathetic, Ballmer not getting the point across in a half hour that I can explain to someone in 5 minutes or a room full of high powered CEOs that can’t understand something I can get my 80 year old almost totally non technical parents to understand. I think this one rates a double bozo award.

Next up is a piece about data center efficiency being a moving target. Some of the ideas aren’t bad except once again, we’re back to the antiquated and far from efficient idea of running cooling air under a raised floor. Black flagged on the last lap.
