I was sceptical of SUN's data center in a shipping container, but they have other simpler tips for greening the computer room. Some of these are tips like ones for the home: adjust the thermostat so you are not cooling more than necessary, turn off unused machines, fix air flow problems, enable power management, replace old inefficient servers and disks and move old data off line.
