Green Cloud Servers will be the way of the future. Solar, Wind and Cow Manure Energy Power Tomorrow`s Data Centers. As IT organizations move infrastructure to the cloud and data centers suck up more power, the search is on for affordable sources of renewable energy.

This may not seem like a big problems but with all the problems with BP in the Gulf of Mexico, the pressure may be on as never before. Can solar energy, wind turbines, geothermal power or even cow manure replace traditional power sources for powering cloud hosting data centers? The answer is a qualified yes.

Companies including Google, Intel, HP, and AMD are working on it as we speak. As of right now, we know that it is much more of a cost using to those types of power sources to power green cloud data centers.

Google’s business is run on data centers so it’s no surprise this company’s philanthropic arm is looking to fund renewable and affordable energy sources. It’s efforts include investments in companies like eSolar , a solar thermal power start up, a few enhanced geothermal power start ups, and even a plan to look at ocean water for power and cooling of data centers Google sums up its efforts to find affordable renewable energy here.


What do you think?  Are the following types of Green cloud computing possible?

  • Solar Cloud Hosting
  • Wind Cloud Hosting
  • Cow Manure Energy Cloud Hosting
  • Thermal Cloud Hosting
