IBM Launches Eco Data Center in Second Life
The company is increasingly turning to Second Life as a platform for displaying new products and research concepts. Likewise, the data center will be used as a demonstration area for IBM’s eco-friendly technologies and services.
Apart from launching virtual data centers, the company announced in early August that it is planning to build a $360 million adaptive data center by renovating an existing building at its facility in Research Triangle Park.
In addition to greening itself, IBM is also offering a consulting service to help users asses their CSR reporting, the effectiveness of their environmental policies, labor practices, regulatory compliance, corporate values and other CSR-related activities.
