The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego and CLUMEQ, a Canadian High Performance Computing consortium, will collaborate to design an ultra-efficient data center as part of a program to promote green IT initiatives.  …

… “Under the partnership, SDSC and CLUMEQ/McGill University researchers will design and build a business case and a conceptual design for a jointly-managed, ultra-efficient data center to be built in Quebec, which has an abundance of green hydroelectric power and an ideally suited cool climate that can provide free cooling to the data center’s high-performance computer systems for much of the year.
