Most companies today are concerned with the high cost of energy and how to be more efficient; computer giant IBM is no different. IBM recently partnered with Data Specialties, Inc. (DSI) to reduce their energy use and costs at their Silicon Valley Labs server room in San Jose, CA by installing a cold aisle containment process. “This single cold aisle containment system will produce a total energy savings of 146 kilowatt hours or over $11,000
a year, and is expected to payback the cost of the system in three years,” said Lynn Guest, IBM’s Energy Coordinator for the San Jose site. The IBM Silicon Valley Lab (formerly known as Santa Teresa) is located in the countryside near south San Jose and is where much of the software for IBM systems are developed, including IBM’s invention of the first hard drive which happened in 1952. Large corporations such as IBM, Disney Studios, and AAA recognize the ability, expertise, and value in the work performed by the mid-sized data center design-build firm and consistently contract with DSI to handle their data center project needs. With more than 20 years industry experience DSI has the expertise to design-build, upgrade, and expand data centers with the highest levels of quality assurance, reliability, and as much environmental efficiency as possible.
