Safari Books Online Hosts Complimentary Webcast With Grow a Greener Data Center Author Douglas Alger

Safari® Books Online (www.safaribooksonline.com), the leading on-demand digital library for technology, digital media, and business professionals, announced today that it will host a complimentary webcast on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 9 a.m. PDT / 12 Noon EDT with Douglas Alger, author of the new book by Cisco Press titled Grow a Greener Data Center: A guide to building and operating energy-efficient, ecologically sensitive IT and Facilities infrastructure.

Normal data centers have a huge environmental impact, using massive amounts of energy and water, emitting pollutants, and discarding huge quantities of machine waste. For data center designers and IT professionals, it is possible to design a data center that consumes fewer resources, costs less money to run, has a longer usable lifespan, and can even highlight a company’s social responsibility. Author Douglas Alger makes the business case for greening data centers and presents technologies, design strategies, and operational approaches to help any company improve the energy efficiency and “eco-friendliness” of their IT hosting environments.

During the 60-minute webcast on Sept. 24, Alger will discuss:

  • Greening physical construction, power, cooling, and servers
  • Equipment consolidation, virtualization
  • Available utility and government incentive programs
  • Cost-effective water and conservation, recycling, and e-waste management
  • Limiting environmental impact through siting, building materials, landscaping, and job-site construction practices

To register for this complimentary event, please visit: http://www.safaribooksonline.com/events/greenerdatacenter.html. The first 10 attendees to sign up and attend will receive a free autographed copy of Grow a Greener Data Center by Cisco Press, and all webcast attendees will receive 45 days of complimentary access to the book on Safari Books Online. Subscribers can download and print content and can view the content online or in PDF format from a computer or mobile device like the iPhone/iPod touch.

“Green topics are gaining a lot of popularity in today’s business environment, but companies are often at a loss how to turn conversation into action,” said Paige Mazzoni, VP of Marketing, Safari Books Online. “Douglas Alger has some fantastic ideas that the data center industry should embrace to make sure new data centers are energy efficient.”
