This week in Labs, Cameron Sturdevant and Jim Rapoza go green, with analysis, testing and commentary on where the product hype and feel-good notions about green IT meet up with hard numbers in measurement and cost.
Then, cruise over to read Jim's commentary on green IT costs.
I responded this week to a reader's question about how well-suited OpenOffice.org 3.0's database component is as a Microsoft Access replacement (see here for pictures), and I opined about well-founded doubts regarding cloud infrastructure.
Jeff Cogswell expanded on his recent Amazon EC2 work with a review of RightScale's handy EC2 management front end, and, yes, he took screenshots.
If you have a burning IT question that only eWEEK Labs can answer, drop me or another Labs analyst a line, or have your say in the comments section below. Have a great weekend, everyone.
