HP announces largest deployment of new cooling technology

This week HP announced the largest deployment to date of its Dynamic Smart Cooling technology. The deployment is into a data center located in India.

HP logoHP Labs, the company’s central research organization, wanted to demonstrate the scaling of its cooling technology in a real-world, heterogeneous data center environment. The result is one of the most sensor-rich data centers in the world, yielding a 20 percent reduction in cooling power consumption upon startup.

Once fully optimized, the Dynamic Smart Cooling-based data center is expected to save 7,500 megawatt-hours (MWh) annually – equal to the power consumption of more than 750 U.S. homes – and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 7,500 tons annually.

The project consolidated 14 datacenters in Bangalore into a new 70,000 square foot facility. HP expects to be able to demonstrate a 40% reduction in energy use in the new facility compared to typical data center cooling approaches.
