Energy efficiency of many Info-tech Companies is uber-great and getting better. As recently reported , Google consumes only 260MW for its entire operations, while it takes about 500MW (almost twice as much!) to move 3400 Celebrities (i.e. 3.4 kiloCelebs
) to fill up the Kodak Theater hosting Academy award . In other words, 260MW power consumption is roughly the equivalent of 1700 limos’ powertrain: thus, it well could be that “Limo servers” in just NY City alone use more engine power than all IT giants of the world combined!... more details at .
When it comes to the energy efficiency estimates for any IT project, it would be a good idea to put it in a context of that 500MW "Limo Servers" used as a base for comparative analysis
Energy efficiency of web servers is far better than of that "wheel servers"
