The University of Michigan has enhanced its data center efficiency through modular containment
Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) November 11, 2010
WHAT: Mike Mallia, CEO of AFCO Systems, will provide an overview of the design goals for power distribution, high density cooling via modular containment, innovative distributed structured cabling, and environmental monitoring as he presents a customer case study with the University of Michigan.
In 2009 the University of Michigan, an innovator in data center efficiency, brought online a newly constructed, efficient North Campus Data Center (NCDC). This data center is built to Tier 3 standards and uses the concept of modular containment to operate a network that is dedicated to staying green.
Planned and operated by the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers (UMHHC), the NCDC provides up to ~2.5MW computing capacity in an approximately 15,000 gross square foot data center.
