Submission + - Live Earth Hosts Site at Solar-Powered Data Center (

1sockchuck writes: "The web site for tomorrow's Live Earth concert series is being hosted at a solar-powered data center that uses 120 solar panels to generate DC power. AISO.Net is one of a small number of hosts that use solar power to provide electricity for their data centers (as opposed to buying clean energy credits, a common practice among hosts that market their "green" operations). Even with the current focus on energy efficiency, using solar power for data centers remains a challenge due to issues with cost and capacity."
