The Scott Data Center is logged in and prepared to begin construction on an expansion and renovation plan that will make the Omaha centre one of the most powerful and energy-efficient operations of its type in the Midlands.
The plan includes a renovation of 50,000 sq ft of the operation’s current 80,000 sq ft data centre and a new 30,000 sq ft central power plant. The plant will boost energy efficiency and increase power density so the data centre can power more racks of servers and computer equipment, while also keeping them cool and running smoothly.The project, designed over the last year and funded by the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation, is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2012. The renovations to the existing data centre will begin in the coming days, said Ken Moreano, executive director at the Scott Technology Center, where the data centre is located.
