Keywords:eco consortium? energy efficiency? India infrastructure?

Sun Microsystems has initiated an "eco consortium" in India, with member companies including Wipro Infotech, APC-MGE, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Hitachi Data Systems, to address industry concerns about limited power, space and energy in India as demand grows for infrastructure utilization.

The alliance will enable customers to address technology infrastructure issues in the data center. Members will share best practices and methodologies to help businesses cut costs and "green" their operations.

Wipro's system integration and consulting experience will provide guidance for scaling within the same footprint. APC-MGE will employ its know-how in data center infrastructure architectures to address power and cooling issues. AMD, meanwhile will offer its energy-efficient computing technologies to help customers cut business energy costs, and Hitachi Data's green storage solutions will enable better use of storage assets to cut power needs and improve IT efficiencies.

As part of its eco innovation initiative, Sun also opened energy-efficient data centers earlier this year in Bengaluru; Santa Clara, California; and Blackwater, United Kingdom. Since the Bengaluru site's opening in February, Sun claims the 10,400ft? data center has been consolidated to 5,096?, with a 50 percent cut in server and storage space footprint, 155 percent increase in computing capacity and migration of applications from 300 older servers to 100 new ones.
