This site in Southbury, Connecticut is a data center retrofit success story. …

IBM Green Innovation Data Center: “IBM transformed a 2,000 square foot legacy data center into an environmentally friendly, state-of-the-art facility—without service interruption. The data center offers twice the processing power in one quarter the space and reduces the environmental footprint. “

The data center uses hundreds of networked sensors to understand the real-time performance of the space in order to optimize energy, power, and cooling. Cooling can be adjusted dynamically to the thermal profile of the data center environment.

The cooling system design has incorporated redundancy. …

IBM Green Innovation Data Center Consolidation Project (PDF): “In the event of a failure of one of the major cooling systems, the ceiling and floor damper systems help ensure that the cooling system support both zones’ heat loads until repairs can be made. “
