Next Week

As I'm going to be really busy next week I thought I'd share with the readers of this blog what I'm going to be doing.
Sadly, I will not be in NICE for the data centre 2012 event but I do have appointments every day.
I have a discussion with a data centre hosting provider on Monday regarding the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres, another on Tuesday in London, followed by a visit to the Data Centre Academy at the Tower Hotel (SNIA) on Wednesday and an an evening event at the BCS organised by the CW500 Club on the topic of  Data Centre Transformation.
Thursday I shall be in Northampton for an energy efficiency networking event and finally on Friday I shall be a bit closer to home doing planning for an event that we're organising with a partner organisation that will take place in September.
Phew, and it doesn't stop, the week after I have 2 events and a CEEDA assessment and then its the bank holiday weekend for the Queens Jubilee.
We've also had some great news this week but its under embargo until I have permission to make it public.

Green IT Qualifications

Here at Carbon3IT Ltd, all our consultants have as a minimum the following recognised qualifications:
Foundation Certificate in Green IT (ISEB)
Intermediate Certificate EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres
ITIL Foundation
Prince 2 Practitioner

We've also been invited to participate in the creation of new intermediate green IT qualifications and review new syllabuses for Data Centres design, more details soon.
If you have any questions on the course content or which training provider we used please contact us on our usual numbers or email


Well, the BCS CEEDA award CEEDA Website is going great guns, we have a number of clients scheduled for  assessments before September and they are all very keen to get their data centres assessed for energy efficiency.
But, we're very pleased that the wide range of clients have taken the steps to prove to the outside world that they are taking energy efficiency within the data centre very seriously (perhaps to stop Greenpeace from mentioning them!).
Anyway, go to the website to find out more and then when you're ready to get an assessment contact the BCS directly or David Carter from DCD.
If you're not ready and are unsure what to do next with regards to data centre energy efficiency measures contact Carbon3IT Ltd directly on 01926 843389.
We offer a pre CEEDA assessment that will detail the areas that you'll need to focus on for a high level of CEEDA award.
We also offer a full Green IT solution from desktops to data centres, so if you want to be ICT resource efficient, you know where to come.
