Another 90 Percent

This post from Joel Makower is yet another one that suggests IT costs can be reduced by 90 percent. At least, some of them, particular energy. It covers SUN's new processors, and has a few tidbits in there on energy use that gives one pause:

When U.S. Dataport, a company in San Jose, Calif., planned a $1.2 billion server farm "that would be the world's largest data center," it called for "10 huge air-conditioned warehouses on 174 acres that would constantly draw 180 megawatts of electricity -- about enough to provide energy for all the homes in a city the size of Honolulu."
