Report confirms NDC’s disruptive concept
Fast, Cheap and Green! As more and larger data centers are being built worldwide, NDC’s approach is 2X better compared with the current industry standard.
Munich, November 20, 2018. NDC Data Centers GmbH announced today that in a recently released review report, the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP confirmed the significant savings in energy, resources, and cost of the NDC Data Centers technologies.
The review evaluated an external assessment of two critical features required for data centers, namely the Life Cycle Assessment of the Environmental Impact (LCA) and the Life Cycle Costs (LCC). In both criteria, the NDC Data Centers’ innovative and proprietary approach was more than 2x better compared with the current industry-standard. This scenario does not consider the energy consumption of the IT Hardware.
The research results yielded a 50 percent lower environmental impact (greenhouse potential) over the entire life cycle (20 years), a 73 percent lower environmental impact (greenhouse potential) of building execution (harvesting of resources, transportation, construction), and 50 percent lower life cycle costs.
Spyridon Linardakis, CEO of NDC Data Centers GmbH said: “In addition to numerous awards and prizes, our solution is confirmed yet again by an independent and world-renowned research institution. At a time where data centers are taking up more and more space, energy and resources, our ultra-energy-efficient approach provides a significant contribution to the market and the environment.”
Digitalization, exponential tech, and artificial intelligence are continuously driving the demand for data center capacities. Studies predict that data centers and telecommunication infrastructure will soon be responsible for consuming more than 10 percent of the global electric power. With its patented and award-winning concept, NDC Data Centers focus on optimizing the environmental footprint of their data centers and is already achieving impressive results at lighthouse projects in Frankfurt and Munich.
