Data centers are highly secured locations, and client tours can be challenging to secure, not to mention the financial and time costs involved with site visits. Now, IBM is offering a new experience: a model of a green data center in Second Life-a 3D virtual environment. In the IBM Virtual Green Data Center (VGDC) visitors have an opportunity for "hands-on" experience to learn about the energy efficient technologies of IBM Project Big Green. Try solving energy problems in the data center with interactive demos. All of this from the comfort of your office or home.IBM Green Data Center - Virtual green data center
