When visiting VMworld Europe last month we heard a lot of now things. Besides the new vSphere, ESX 4, Distributed Virtual Switches also green IT was a popular thing. Though in most companies the current economic crisis demands more attention than the amount of power being used it still remains a popular item.
VMware also takes this very serious. When returning the “How well do you think VMworld Europe 2009 was” form everybody was handed a t-shirt. Proud VMware nerd as I am I immediately washed the shirt (smelly from the paint I guess..)
That is one thing I shouldn’t have done. I think the shirt was painted with water-based paint… because after just one time washing (my girl did it, so it was done properly! 😉 ) it looks like this…. Hurrah for green IT!
