Forze Hydrogen Racing, a hydrogen-electric racing team that involves students from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Netherlands has shifted its complete IT infrastructure to a co-located environment in Greenhouse Datacenters flagship data center in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands.
Before shifting its data infrastructure to Greenhouse Datacenters, the hydrogen racing team had its IT infrastructure located at the university campus. Greenhouse offers Froze with a colocation service that features an extremely energy-efficient PUE figure of 1.15. This matches Forze’s pledge to make the world a better place with the means of sustainability and better energy resources.
Forze Hydrogen Racing is a high-tech hydrogen racing team that comprises students from the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. Forze is one of the only two hydrogen racing teams across the world, which is competing in the ‘conventional’ gasoline-powered Dutch Supercar Challenge.
The Forze team has around sixty TU Delft students in varying compositions, out of which 25 each year take a gap year. The team has been researching and working on developing hydrogen-powered racecars for the last 14 years (Since 2007). They aim to encourage a transition to cleaner transportation in the future, with pure water being the sole emission.
Greenhouse provides the team with rack space in their DC2 colocation facility in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands. Besides the energy-efficient Power Usage Effectiveness figure of 1.15, Greenhouse DC2 (PDF download) gives extensive international and regional connectivity options which include carriers and IXs, cloud onramps, zero-latency links with the Internet hub in Amsterdam, 24/7 engineering support onsite, etc.
