Intel’s PR microblog has an entry announcing that the winner of the Datacenter Efficiency Challenge will be fêted this week at IDF
Next week during IDF, Intel will honor the winners of the Data Center Efficiency Challenge, which kicked off on March 30 with the launch of the Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series. Of the submissions received, the judges chose CEETHERM Data Center at Georgia Tech University in the Enterprise category and Dorian Muthig as the Small Business winner. These winning solutions leverage Intel technology to reduce the energy and costs associated with data center operations and highlight the role technology plays in the overall efficiency and sustainability of organizations. Congrats to our grand prize winners!
Submit a short video or written “proposal” describing plans to use Intel server technology (Intel Xeon 5500 series or other current Intel-based server platforms) to save both energy and money in your data center.
One winner in each of two categories – enterprise and small business – will receive a new Intel Xeon processor 5500 series server, an energy efficient netbook or mobile PC, will be flown to San Francisco for the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) and will meet with senior data center experts for consultation on their proposal.
And if you entered but didn’t win, fear not, there is always the Datacenter of the Future competition at SC09 this year.
