HIVE Blockchain Technologies declared that it will be a development partner of the Boden Type Data Center (BTDC) research project, a European Union-funded project with the principal purpose of displaying a series of extremely innovative key engineering systems to create the most cost- and energy-efficient data centers with minimum environmental influence. The BTDC pilot project used a series of techniques, methods, and tools developed by cooling provider EcoCooling (UK).
To enhance data center energy effectivity
A common data center has a PUE range between 1.6 and 2.2, which signifies that for every 1,000 watts (W) of power output delivered by the data center’s IT equipment, added 600W to 1,200W are utilized for cooling, power conversion losses, etc. This BTDC prototype introduced at the beginning of 2019 has obtained notably more reliable Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) than conventional data centers, of less than 1.01; a PUE rating of 1.0 is equal to a 100% effective facility.
Hive, Board Director, Tobias Ebel stated that their mission at HIVE is to offer High performance with environmental liability. He additionally stated that their previous achievements have been quite impressive however the BTDC introduces an opportunity to set the latest standards for this sector. The company is preparing to achieve a PUE of <1.01 in the BTDC through a method to implement this in both new projects and retrospectively incorporate these methods and processes into their current facilities.
The partnership among the HIVE and the BTDC is crucial for the HPC sector. The research should drive to exceptional levels of capability in HPC which shall be implemented to high scale facilities.
The BTDC is an Horizon2020 research project funded by the EU to enhance the effectiveness of data centers, which utilize 3% to 5% of global power. Future applications are anticipated to drive demand even more. The consortium is built up of EcoCooling, H1 Systems, RISE SICS North, Fraunhofer IOSB, and Boden Business Agency.
