Research highlights looming 5G infrastructure energy efficiency challenge

“Telecom operators making meaningful energy and cost reductions are doing so by evaluating the entire ecosystems around their network operations – people, objectives, infrastructure and partners,” said Scott Armul, vice president for global DC power and outside plant at Vertiv.


Wellcome Sanger Institute selects EfficiencyIT for new data centre upgrade

UK data centre consultancy EfficiencyIT has secured a new contract with the Wellcome Sanger Institute to deploy over 300 custom Schneider Electric PDU metering systems at its 4MW data centre near Cambridge.


Carbon reduction through IT energy optimisation

This month’s Net Zero Festival 2020 shows how interest is growing in the net zero economy 2050 target. The scale of the challenge is huge, but the pace of transition is accelerating, and more and more companies are starting to take it very seriously. Dean Boyle, CEO, EkkoSense, discusses the importance of optimising the performance of power and cooling across networks.


Magnetic circuits could radically reduce AI energy consumption

The combination of AI and large data sets has profoundly improved our ability to model the world around us, predict its next move and recognize its images and patterns.

Underpinning all of this data-driven innovation, though, are servers and accelerators that can devour astronomical amounts of energy, depending on the task.

Last year, research indicated that training a single AI algorithm can require up to 284 tonnes of carbon dioxide – five times the lifetime emissions of an average car.


Adopting a low energy and low water consumption approach

Excool is specialists in indirect evaporative cooling . Over the last decade the data centre world has changed, the demand from the market is very different now in 2020 compared to 2010 and data centres began to implement IEC into their builds. 2010 was about low energy and resultant low PUE. But generally the sites were not so large and 5MW site was considered a large site, so high-water use was not a consideration.
