Digital Realty Saves 300 Million Gallons Of Water Annually

By Roy L Hales

Screen-shot-2014-03-18-at-3.43.47-PMThe average data centre has an IT load of 1.2
MW and requires 4.3 million gallons of water per year for cooling purposes. So Digital Realty was very interested when Emerson Network Power said their Liebert® DSETM system could drastically reduce the amounts. That was in 2012. Since then, these two companies worked together have to cut the average center’s water consumption back to between 2.7 and 3.2 million gallons per year. Digital Realty saves more than 300 million gallons of water annually.

Breakthrough In Fibre Optics Communications

Researchers at UC San Diego have increased the maximum power, and distance, optical signals can be sent through optical fibres. This is a major breakthrough in fibre optics communications.

Originally Published on UC San Diego

Electrical engineers have broken key barriers that limit the distance information can travel in fiber optic cables and still be accurately deciphered by a receiver. Photonics researchers at the University of California, San Diego have increased the maximum power — and therefore distance — at which optical signals can be sent through optical fibers. This advance has the potential to increase the data transmission rates for the fiber optic cables that serve as the backbone of the internet, cable, wireless and landline networks. The research is published in the June 26 issue of the journal Science.
