Survey Results: Energy Efficiency of Japanese Data Centers
During this session, The Green IT Promotion Council (GPIC) will review the results of the 2012 and 2011 survey on Energy Efficiency of Japanese Data Centers conducted by The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan. The survey included data centers in Singapore and Vietnam, and measured not only energy efficiency in facilities, but also energy productivity of IT equipment in data centers. As a result of collaboration with The Green Grid, GPIC has developed a holistic approach to viewing energy efficiency in data centers.
Japanese Data Centers: How they Kept Running Even After the Earthquake
Although the March 2011 earthquakes struck a wide area of eastern Japan, data centers and its related industry showed impressive continuity of operations and business. This session will explain the real events seen and experienced by the actual data center business operator, sharing lessons learned, while introducing unique anti-disaster technology developed and adopted by Japanese data center operators. The remainder of the session will focus on the opportunities and potential of Japanese data centers in terms of its market status with energy efficient-technology widely used in Japanese data centers. In addition, some Japan Data Center Council (JDCC) activities example (sub working group) will be presented.
