Boulder, Colorado

In June of 2008, IBM opened its greenest data center in Boulder Colorado to meet the worldwide demand of greener data centers. The new data center features numerous leading-edge technologies and services, including high density computing systems utilizing virtualization technology, along with energy efficient power and cooling technologies. These, in conjunction with the center’s energy efficient design and construction, will allow IBM to reduce its overall carbon footprint compared to standard data centers. Choosing the setting in Boulder was an easy choice because the site is an optimal location to leverage energy efficiency. When exterior temperature and humidity levels are favorable, the new data center’s technology switches to free-cooling mode — utilizing a water economizer to dramatically reduce energy consumption.
