Adopting a low energy and low water consumption approach

Excool is specialists in indirect evaporative cooling . Over the last decade the data centre world has changed, the demand from the market is very different now in 2020 compared to 2010 and data centres began to implement IEC into their builds. 2010 was about low energy and resultant low PUE. But generally the sites were not so large and 5MW site was considered a large site, so high-water use was not a consideration.


Data centres aren’t using as much energy as we thought

Researchers have criticised what they call the “conventional wisdom” that data centre energy utilisation is spiralling out of control, claiming such narratives ignore the great gains made in data centre efficiency.

Revised global data centre energy use estimates were published last week in the journal Science by researchers seeking to clarify the environmental impact of the server farms that underpin the cloud and much of our digital world.


Simec Atlantis provides update on ocean-powered data centre project

Green developer Simec Atlantis Energy has provided an update on its plans to hook a tidal stream power array to a data centre.

The company intends to design and build the world’s first ocean-powered data centre near the MeyGen development in Scotland, an offshore tidal energy project Atlantis launched in 2010.


Infographic: What is hyperconvered infrastructure?
If you're struggling to contend with disparate IT architectures, you’re not alone  Varying proportions of private, public and hybrid cloud consumption are becoming the norm for enterprises, which creates a new set of infrastructure management challenges. Without a robust strategy of coordination and control, organisations face rising costs and complexity. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) unites storage,... Read More

How are data centres adapting to be more eco-friendly?

In an environment where consumption of all things appears to be heading skywards, data use, bandwidth and storage requirements are right on trend. With levels of data creation and use now surpassing zettabytes volumes per year, the data centre technology suites that facilitate this compute power need to be carefully controlled.

From the standpoint of an infrastructure supplier, today’s discussions with data centre operators and corporate end users, with owned data centre capability, are framed around increased bandwidth, reduced latency and energy concerns including lower power usage and effective climate control to optimise the compute environment.
