GreenDataNet activities

ICTroom will employ its knowledge and experience of energy efficient data centers into several WPs (Work Packages) of the project. ICTroom will be leader of WP1 and WP4, and will ensure the link to the actual common practice and assumptions in the landscape of data centers. The partner will contribute to the specification of urban data centers and design specifications of data center models and software models, including the monitoring and management of energy flows optimization. Finally, ICTroom will be involved in the demonstration and validation Work Package, which will deploy the project innovations in real data centers, as it is the company's core business to design and build these critical environments.

Expected benefits

Enhancing collaboration with top research organizations for scientific cooperation and student internships; leveraging the scientific expertise of research partners for renewable integration and prediction of key data center parameters; developing new models for energy efficient data centers aiming at lower environmental footprints; exceptional possibility to test and evaluate new developments in reduction of energy and the new (reversed) concept of data following the energy, via the smart grid.
