Description

Energy consumption is an increasing concern for data centers. This contribution summarizes recent energy efficiency upgrades at the Port d’Informació Científica (PIC) in Barcelona, Spain which have considerably lowered energy consumption. The upgrades were particularly challenging, as they involved modifying the already existing machine room, which is shared by PIC with the general IT services of the local University (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, UAB), with all the services in full operation, as well as the introduction of “free cooling” techniques in a location 20 km from the Mediterranean Sea.
