“There are powerful economic factors pushing us towards cloud computing,” said Jonathan Koomey , a researcher who has studied data center energy use at Stanford and Lawrence Berkeley National Labs. “One of the major reasons is the more efficient use of power by cloud computing providers.”

Koomey spoke about the power advantages of cloud computing this morning at the Uptime Institute Symposium 2010 in New York. The three-day event brought together more than 1,800 industry professionals at the New York Hilton.
