GEM Energy, IBM and Syracuse University will host the third annual Green Data Center Summit on October 17, with discussion of critical issues facing data center owners, managers and designers, and a tour of the Syracuse University Green Data Center, one of the world's most efficient data centers.
GEM Energy, IBM and Syracuse University will host the third annual Green Data Center Summit on October 17, with discussion of funding, incentives, technology, equipment, energy use, performance and other critical issues affecting data center owners, managers and designers.
The event includes tours of the Syracuse University Green Data Center, one of the world's most energy-efficient data centers incorporating leading-edge technology and the most advanced energy efficiency practices.
The Syracuse University Green Data Center uses 50 percent less energy than a typical data center. The system includes 12 patented Capstone C65 Hybrid UPS systems that run on natural gas and produce 65 kilowatts each. The center makes its own heat and air conditioning, and computers are cooled with water rather than air. The on-site electrical tri-generation system allows the data center to operate completely off-grid.
The project was designed and built in 2009 through a partnership between GEM, IBM, NYSERDA and Syracuse University.
