The aim of the joint research project is to make data centers as the heart of data management future-proof and sustainable. Together with partners from science and practice, transdisciplinary cooperation is being conducted in this field under the direction of the University of Stuttgart.
The project "EcoRZ - Sustainable Data Centres" deals with the energy- and resource-efficient integration of data centres in locations in Baden-Württemberg. Based on analyses of existing data centres and those in planning, work is being done on various topics:
The zafh.net competence center is working on work package 3 "Infrastructure and Technologies". Here, concepts for currently available and future data center infrastructures are systematically evaluated (heating, cooling, network backup systems, buildings, IT hardware, software and communication technology).
