IBM and Syracuse University today celebrated the construction of a new Green Data Center (GDC) designed to showcase multiple energy-saving technologies. The $12.4 million, 12,000-square-foot data center will feature on-site power generation, DC power distribution, chillers and cabinets equipped with water-cooled rear-door heat exchangers. Syracuse University will use the data center for its IT equipment, and also provide detailed analysis of its energy efficiency. IBM has supplied $5 million in electrical co-generation equipment and servers, and use the facility to showcase its “green” data center technology. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is contributing $2 million to the project. This video tour is guided by Chris Sedore, VP IT & CIO, Syracuse University and Ez Khalifa, Professor of Engineering, Syracuse University.
