WRAL.com in the Research Triangle is reporting on IBM’s new $360M datacenter, one of 450 the company operates worldwide. The 100,000 square foot facility was built with energy efficiency in mind
On Thursday, IBM unveiled its massive collection of data processing computer servers that the company says uses half the energy of a typical complex. The site boasts a reflective roof for solar heat, collected rainwater for reuse and energy-efficient lighting systems operated on timers.
Among its first tenants – IBM’s own Web site and the IT operations of the United States Golf Association.
The site is oriented to hosting cycles for outside businesses, not to HPC, but the technologies should apply.
