When Hardware is Free, Power is Expensive

Jeff Atwood has posted an interesting article on how these days for companies like Google that run large server datacenters, the cost of hardware is negligible. The real concern, is power consumption.

I’m often interested in hearing the strategies that Google is taking in terms of these types of things. In the future, energy concerns will only become more important. As large as Google is, they’re in a good position to take the lead in terms of creating a somewhat sustainable (or at least not entirely wasteful) computer enterprise.
