Running a High-Performing, Yet Energy-Efficient Data Center

Stanford University may be at the epicenter of the digital revolution, but it is also leading the way in lowering the energy footprint that goes with it. The university just announced that its Stanford Research Computing Center uses nearly 40% less energy per square foot than the national median, prevents more than 1,300 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year, and outperforms 100% of similar buildings nationwide. The center hosts high-performance computing equipment for Stanford faculty and researchers, and running such an energy-efficient building requires a daily review of the whole facility, looking for issues, leaks, rodents, security problems and energy-wasting situations.
