ARM addresses energy-guzzling data centres
ARM and Cambridge Cleantech have joined forces to address a major challenge for industry – the need to develop genuinely low energy data centres.
They co-host an event at The Future Business Centre in Kings Hedges Road, Cambridge, on Tuesday November 25 (10am-2pm).
Martin Garratt, CEO of Cambridge CleanTech, put the issue into stark perspective. He said: “The energy from the equivalent of 30 nuclear power stations will be needed in developing countries to cater for the future needs of data centres. Members can join us to discuss novel ways of how we can reduce energy usage in data centres.”
Darren Cepulis, Data Centre Architect, ARM will set the context for data centres, including trends, energy management and future needs The global impact of low energy servers will be addressed by Andie Stephens, advisor, Carbon Trust.
There will also be a live case study on an award-winning low carbon data centre presented by Zeb Ahmed, Deputy MD, Bouygues E&S Contracting UK. Alquist’s Andrew Jones will take centre stage in a spotlight on date centre tech solutions companies along with Gerry Rutherford of Cambridge Smart Solutions, Alan Beresford of EcoCooling, Christine Modla-Thomas of Munters and Zafer Ure of Phase Change Materials.
A Government perspective on helping to stimulate demand for low energy data centres will be delivered by Bob Crooks of DEFRA. There will be ample opportunities for networking. For more details, visit: http://www.cambridgecleantech.org.uk/
