Syracuse University Green Data Center Syracuse

As part of its "Smarter Planet" initiative, IBM has worked with Syracuse University to look beyond computer hardware and software to the actual infrastructure of the data center. The Green Data Center - with its own electrical tri-generation system and IBM’s latest computers and computer-cooling technology - is expected to use 50 percent less energy than a typical computer center, making it one of the “greenest” in operation today. The datacenter was funded in part by NYSERDA.

Stony Brook University CEEDiT Stony Brook

The first goal of the Center for Energy Efficient Digital Technologies (CEEDiT) at Stony Brook University is to bring the power dissipation of a simple reversible device below kBT ln2 per bit, the established theoretical limit for irreversible computation. The Center will provide framework for collaboration between the Department of Physics and Astronomy, the Department of Computer Science and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Stony Brook, Brookhaven National Laboratory, HYPRES and other industrial partners based in New York State.
