GreenIT Cube

  • Innovative and energy-efficient: The "GreenIT-Cube" in the form of a cube measuring 27×30×22 m with six floors and an adjacent technical building including cooling towers.
  • In the first version, the GreenITCube has a cooling capacity of 4 megawatts, which will rise to 12 megawatts in the final expansion phase. The water cooling used in the rear doors of the server cabinets is highly efficient and requires less than 7% of the electrical power of the IT equipment.
  • It houses a mirror (RZ-1 and GreenIT-Cube) of the important basic IT services, as well as the servers, computing nodes and storage units for the experiment data.
  • A time-lapse video about the construction of the GreenITCube can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j93R0kORA9c

RZ-1

  • Conventional data center with the central network node, mirror data center for the important basic services, and central location of the magnetic tape library.

BG2

  • Location of the second (backup) magnetic tape library at an independent location
