It’s a connected world. A huge proportion of potential customers carry devices that constantly talk to machines around the world. People wake up and expect the latest news to be available to them in less time than it takes to pour a cup of coffee. A website that’s down is no longer an inconvenience, it’s a potentially company-ending disaster. Satisfying the demands of users means multiple data centers with racks of machines. What it’s easy to forget is that every machine in every rack is contributing to our energy consumption.
It’s a given that we can’t wean people off their desire for data. But how can we reduce the costs associated with it? This presentation covers the technological advances in the Linux kernel that put it ahead of the competition in terms of power consumption and reduced cost of ownership, along with discussion of future advances that’ll mean companies will no longer ask whether they can afford to move to Linux – but whether they can afford not to.
As a speaker at OSCON I believe we should all strive to create a fun, educational, enjoyable and harassment-free conference experience for everyone.
I’m pleased to say Tim O’Reilly thinks so too!
If you are being harassed, or witness harassment please report it to venue security, the police, the conference organisers or a trusted friend. You do not have to put up with it.
For more detail on what a code of conduct which includes an anti-harassment policy should contain, please review the geekfeminism wiki conference anti-harassment policy template
