Hewlett Packard (NYSE: HPQ) has unveiled its Net-Zero Energy Data Center, technology designed to automatically match energy supply with a facility’s IT workload energy demands, and cut power usage by 30 per cent.
It is intended that the architecture can help cut operating costs by more than 80 percent.
Replicating the success of tech giants like Google, Facebook and Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), HP’s data centers will use on-site renewable energy to offset the use of energy drawn from the power grid.
The company has unveiled architecture for datacentre facilities which ensures the servers on consume as much energy as can be generated at the facility.
Under HP’s plan, firms will deploy on-site power generators such as solar arrays or biogas-harvesting equipment.
This power supply can be supplemented by local power grids when needed. Additionally, air is collected from outside and used to cool the datacentre.
