Germany is not behind the rest of the world with regard to eco-friendliness. Citi’s new Data Canter in Frankfurt has been awarded the first LEED accreditation ever in Germany and the first ever for a data center building. We all know that the energy used in data center buildings is much higher compared to other commercial buildings. This eco-friendly building has a sustainable design that brings a significant change in this buildings data consumption without compromising on operations.
The unique design of this building allows it to use only 30% of the power required for services that a conventional data centre would utilize and only 40% of the heating energy. It even uses an innovative reverse osmosis treatment which lets it save 35,950,000 liters of water per annum! The design of this complex is also pleasing to the eye and is an interesting combination of intelligently designed inhabited spaces and extensive green planes.
