iomart to host Green IT seminar

iomart, a managed hosting and data centre company, today announced that it will be holding a one day seminar at Wembley Stadium on the 25th June 2008.

The company believes that the event titled 'Sowing the Seeds of Change' will feature a number of influential industry leaders and media commentators who will deliver a series of keynote sessions, all focussing on the topic of IT and the Environment.

Sarah Haran, Managing Director, iomart stated: "The subject of Green IT is very much on the corporate agenda and that being 'seen to be green' is considered desirable from a brand perspective.

Yet we all know that our data centres are not the most environmentally friendly buildings on the block and that in reality they never will be. But that should not prevent us from actively attempting to reduce the impact that our industry has on the environment."

"We are hoping that this event will provide a platform for some thought provoking debate on the areas that the IT industry should be looking to address, identifying the priorities and the low hanging fruit.

The focus for Green IT appears to be power related at the moment but that should not preclude us from considering every avenue from virtualisation techniques through to the procurement process." Sarah added.
