Is Today's Data Center Industry's Energy Usage a Problem? (Poll Closed)

  • Yes. Data centers are an environmental scourge that we must find a way to restrain in order to save the planet.

  • No. Data centers just centralize power consumption, but when you offset them with the energy saved elsewhere they're a net plus.

  • Not for long. It may be ugly now, but new technologies and redesigns are just getting started. The data center industry is already on top of this.

  • Don't blame data centers, they're the symptom not the problem. Blame consumer and enterprise data consumption. If the demand is there, it will get filled whether or not the NY Times likes it.

  • Who cares?

  • I don't know.
