Steve Smith, CEO of Equinix says energy improvements at the San Jose site will make the data centre “one of the more efficient in the world.” When data centre operator Equinix. opened a new facility in San Jose last month, it also revealed the latest in technology that aims to reap as much power as possible from every last watt.
“In terms of our other data centres, this will be one of the more efficient in the world,” CEO Steve Smith said. The effort isn’t just about being green for green’s sake. The Foster City-based company expects to save around US$1 million a year in utility costs compared to less-efficient facilities, Smith said, thanks to efforts such as innovative cooling systems and automated lighting.
