HP only one of big four to be off Uptime’s “Green 100”

Edit: Uptime made a mistake in leaving HP off the list. The corrected Uptime Green 100 list includes them. So I guess they’re green after all! I’m working on scheduling a talk with some HP execs about how exactly they’ve been green.

I saw today that The Uptime Institute announced its “Global Green 100,” which it described in a press release on the Green 100 as companies that “have showed an exemplary commitment to improving their data center operations, not only reducing their carbon footprints, but also realizing significant financial savings.”

Dell, IBM and Sun Microsystems are on the list. Hewlett-Packard is not. I’m not really sure what that means, but I found it interesting that HP was the only one of the big four server manufacturers to not be part of the list. Other big IT companies on the list include Cisco, EMC, Microsoft and Oracle.

HP did undertake a massive data center consolidation project a couple years ago, but I’m not sure what they’ve done since on the energy-efficiency front.
