Direct Current-Powering Demonstrates Significant Reduction in Data Center Energy Use

Berkeley, CA—Data centers are the backbone of the Information Age, providing data storage for websites and databases, and supporting virtually every larger-sized private corporation and institution. Data centers can use 100 times more electricity than a typical office building (on a square foot basis), so energy costs are a major concern. With financial support from the California Energy Commission, researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have teamed with Silicon Valley giants including Sun, Intel, Cisco, and many other industry partners, to demonstrate technologies that have the potential to reduce the operating cost of data centers by billions of dollars a year, while maintaining or even improving reliability, lengthening the life of servers, and saving energy.
