HP Throws Down

some large numbers when it comes to reducing energy use, claiming they are going to try and reduce their global energy consumption by 20 percent in three years. Now, I'm a big believer in my own one percent rule, which states that a one percent annual change in a big system results in a massive chaos - HP is saying they are going for about a seven percent reduction per year. That of course includes their very successful data center reductions that are already started (consolidating 85 centers to 6).

I'm not saying they can't do it, I'm just saying man the lifeboats; most people can't move this fast. They better be ready to start accepting resignations for the rearguard.
