11 Mar 2020
Energy Efficiency, Cost Management and DCIM

In 2012 in Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, an award winning bespoke 'Green Data Centre' was designed and built by Future-tech in collaboration with Estates and Facilities and IT Services. Approaching its notional 'half-life' and in an era of Climate Change, Cathal is reviewing the current use of the Data Centre with a view to seeing what further developments can be made - in particular in relation to energy efficiency and the feasibility or otherwise of using renewable energy technologies to partly meet the power consumption demands of the Data Centre.

  • Technology review of all components of the data centre
  • Energy efficiency and drilling in to the PUE figure
  • Feasibility or otherwise of local renewable energy sources
  • Future enhancements to consider
