Green Channel: Round Table

Round Table
  • Sustainable IT: End-of-life considerations

    While most of the conversation at ARN’s Sustainable IT roundtable focused on energy efficiency, a critical issue that can’t be forgotten is asset disposal. E-waste is a massive problem around the world and one that’s not easy to contain, Symantec’s Jose Iglesias said.

  • Sustainable IT: Driving interest

    So how can the channel demonstrate environmental savings to their customers and drive interest in sustainable solutions? ComputerCorp’s Michael van Zoggel said integrators can only do what they can do and what they can measure and justify.

  • Sustainable IT: On-demand computing vs. green

    It’s one thing to talk about greening your own infrastructure by better utilising or buying more energy efficient assets, but what happens when those computing resources are being delivered by a third-party provider? Is outsourcing in fact, a way to minimise your carbon impact?

  • Roundtable: Sustainable IT

    Awareness of IT’s environment impact, as well as the enablement role it plays in improving society’s carbon footprint, are now dominant considerations for Australian IT providers and their customers. ARN recently brought together a panel of industry experts to discuss how far we’ve come in the quest for sustainable IT. This roundtable was sponsored by Symantec.

  • Green IT: Beyond the hype

    Although heavy-handed messaging has led to a great deal of scepticism in the market, there’s no doubting that environmental concerns are creating serious market opportunities. ARN recently brought together a group of IT industry thought-leaders to talk about myths and margins.

  • Economic outlook

    One issue put to the panel at ARN’s recent datacentre roundtable was whether the economy was headed into recession and, if so, what impact this could have on IT spending.

  • Future on the rack

    Brian Corrigan, ARN (BC): Datacentre power densities are increasing, due to the increased uptake of blade servers and SAN systems, while electricity costs are quickly growing. Is the industry headed for a crisis and, if so, what can be done about it?

The benefits of the transition from ISDN for businesses and the channel

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) has been operating for more than 20 years in Australia but this technology is now end of life. Earlier this year Telstra ceased sales of ISDN along with a number of copper-based services. Organisations currently using ISDN services are migrating these to alternative solutions that utilise the nbn™ broadband access network as the underlying infrastructure.. Read more
