Sun Backs European Data Center Code

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Building on its commitment to develop products and services that are more energy efficient, Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAVA) today announced its intention to become an endorser of the European Code of Conduct for Data Centers, an initiative designed to inform and stimulate datacenter operators and owners to reduce energy consumption in a cost-effective manner without hampering mission critical functions. As an endorser of the Code of Conduct, Sun will leverage its leadership in this space to promote datacenter best practices throughout the European Union.

The EU Code of Conduct is an important step for the EU and will serve as an exemplary initiative across the globe for bringing together all of the key stakeholders to build energy efficient datacenters that will help both the environment and the economy,” said Dave Douglas, senior vice president of cloud computing and chief sustainability officer. “The eco-friendly technologies and practices outlined in the Code of Conduct not only help to reduce greenhouse emissions, but also serve the bottom line interests of companies and shareholders with significant savings on energy costs.”
