Mass. pledges US$25 million for Holyoke data centre

The commonwealth’s planned data and computing centre in Western Massachusetts has been handed US$25 million by Gov. Deval Patrick, who also tagged the area around the centre’s future home of Holyoke as the Holyoke Innovation District. All told, the new High Performance Computing Center will get US$65 million in funding, including US$40 million from a group of universities.

 

The university consortium consists of MIT, the University of Massachusetts, Boston University and the most recent member, Northeastern University. Industry backers include EMC., Cisco Systems and Accenture. The computing centre has a target completion date set for late 2011. The project is designed to draw hydroelectric power from the river while serving as an example of a green, environmentally friendly data centre.
