DoE Building An Efficient Data Center

September 7, 2012 No Comments »

The US government is getting all set to construct one of the most efficient data centers of the world with a goal of a PUE of 1.06. The data center is coming up under the aegis of the Department of Energy and its National Renewable Energy Laboratory or NREL. There are two more companies that are working in partnership with the DoE to construct this data center. The companies are Intel and HP. The data center, called the Energy Systems Integration Facility is coming up in Golden, Colorado.

One of the main aspects of this data center is the goal of working towards the PUE of 1.06 which, when achieved, is going to be significantly better than 1.91, the industry average.

Among the many benefits that the data center will deliver are compute resources which will support the range of NREL research. There are some major innovations going into the data center including the use of warm water to cool the servers and the data center. Intel HPC chips with Xeon Phi are also being deployed in the data center.
