Peer 1 Hosting came up with an interesting graphic on the energy efficiency of data centers, and how all our web browsing affects energy use.
The graphic starts out with understanding the energy use of data centers in the first place -- including that these energy beasts are the "largest growing energy vacuums in the IT industry" using 31 gigawatts of electricity per year. And that is why understanding how they can be more efficient is essential.
Check out how different companies rank in their data center set-ups, and how we might make things better.
