    Cloud data center management-will it really hit a brick wall?

    Locked

    by shriks ·

    Recently NYT carried out this survey regd. the woes of managing a data center and the levels of efficiencies of running it – Power, Pollution and the Internet http://nyti.ms/SkoL83
    This really was an eye opener to most – now that its out in the media – otherwise almost everyone who critically thinks of the internet and the cloud would have recognized perils of running a cloud service.
    Are we really going to hit a brick wall soon?
    if yes, what makes you think so?
    If not, what are some of the most practical steps you have taken to mitigate the effect of the huge cost & impact on environment and resource utilization that your data center would have generated?
