How Sun reinvented its own data centre infrastructure

| August 3, 2009

This is a pretty cool video of how Sun is walking the walk and not just talking the talk when it comes to its data centre efficiency strategy. Listen to Dean Nelson, director of Global Lab & Data Centre Design Services at Sun Microsystems, tell how the company basically reinvented its data centre infrastructure through virtualisation and consolidation of multiple facilities and the deployment of the company’s products and solutions.

The challenge: Sun had to consolidate 25 years of organic growth, new products, re-organisations, acquisitions, and a multi-million dollar IT and R&D portfolio.

The result: Sun increased storage capacity by 244%, increased computer power by 456%, cut energy costs by 60% and were awarded $1.2 million in rebates from utility suppliers.
