Green Data Project Launches

New resource site for corporate planners seeking a strategic approach to greening their IT operations

NEW YORK -- At the Storage Decisions conference today, The Data Management Institute and Archive Management.org (AMO) launched a joint initiative to develop a strategic approach for Data Center greening.

The Green Data Project (www.greendataproject.org) is an international online community, resource site and web publication focused on managing electronic data in order to reduce electrical power demands in corporate IT.

There are many Green initiatives within the industry today,” says Jon William Toigo, founder of both Data Management Institute and AMO, “but almost all of them are advancing tactical measures involving hardware technologies rather than strategic approaches focused on archive and data management. Green IT must begin with green data. Otherwise a company’s data center greening initiative amounts to little more than rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.”
