University of East Anglia delivers data centre to match corporate green credentials
The University of East Anglia (UEA) is one of the leading green technology institutions in the UK. Students and staff are encouraged to think about what they do and its environmental impact. As part of this, the UEA runs its own Green Impact Awards every year to encourage innovation in the field of environmental impact within the university and beyond.
It should come as no surprise then, that when UEA looked at its existing data centre, it realised that there was much to be done in order to bring it in line with corporate goals. To ensure that they got the best value for ‘greening’ their data centre refurbishment, UEA approach Salix, specialists in energy efficiency loans.
The result was a partnership between UEA, Salix, Future-Tech and DataRacks to deliver energy efficiency, full pay-back within 6 years and a facility that meets very stringent targets.
