Who will drive innovation?

Vertatique commentor David Washburn  recently called our attention to a presentation by Sun Microsystems' CTO, which focused on the class of large computing users with high-growth demand. I was disappointed that the CTO only tangentially talked about power consumption, but his remarks got me thinking . . .

These mega-users have the most to gain by addressing the energy consumption and waste-heat issues. This is good news for all operators of data centers of all sizes. The big players will be driving innovation that can be adopted by everyone.
