eWEEK Labs in Review: The Green Album

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. Check out Cameron's analysis, How Green IT Measures Up, and his review of Raritan's Dominion PX, with which you can start collecting those measurements (see here for pictures). 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. Andrew placed a cherry atop his recent T-Mobile G1 with Google coverage by visiting the downtown San Francisco location where the first G1 units were sold and taking some pictures. 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.
