Put The New HP Supercomputer Over There

It is really a treat when you get to work with a customer very early in the design stage of a new project. Recently, HP has been working with a soon to be named customer on a new energy efficient data center designed in conjunction with a number of new HP HPC technologies. At the customer’s request, I’m not disclosing their name until they get out their own press release later this month. But I’m excited to soon be able to talk about a lot of the technologies they are implementing. Of course just about every new data center today claims to be energy efficient, this particular center is designed not only to be efficient but to employ a number of new technologies to enable them to focus not just on the traditional PUE measure of efficiency but towards Net Zero Energy, or NZE. While PUE is simply calcuated as Total Energy Use / It Energy Use, NZE is defined as (Total Energy – Site Reuse – Site Production) / IT Energy Use.

For now, you will have to be content with this teaser picture of the customer’s new data center, which is in final phases of production. But expect a few more blogs with lots more details over the coming months. Who knows, this project may even make it into HP’s next “make it matter” video.
