1sockchuck (826398) writes "Microsoft and Google have opened a new front in their battle for global domination: data center energy efficiency. Just weeks after Google published data on the extreme efficiency of its previously secret data centers, Microsoft says it has achieved similar results with shipping containers packed with up to 2,500 servers. The geeky benchmark for the battle is Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) a green data center metric advanced by The Green Grid. Microsoft says its containers tested at a PUE of 1.22, while Google reported an average PUE of 1.21 for its data centers, which apparently also are now using containers."
