A major issue in the global data centre market is energy efficiency and cooling. Step forward Data Valley Group. In our special report, we speak with the COO and Founder on how, through the patented Data Cube concept, the company looks to lead the way in the growing data centre market of the Netherlands.
“90 percent of energy usage in a data centre is computers and storage. When you put one megawatt into a data centre, you have 90 percent waste through heat.” Says Jef Gorissen, COO and Founder of Data Valley Group. “Data centres need cooling and we want the heat of our PPUs in our servers to be reused to produce cold for our cooling system. We want to generate our own cold from the heat.”
