HP Opens New Research Facility to Advance Sustainable Data Center Technologies


HP announced the opening of a state-of-the-art research facility in Fort Collins, Colo., in which the company will advance sustainable data center technologies. The new facility will expand on HP’s Converged Infrastructure architecture by developing technologies to eliminate IT sprawl, increase energy efficiency and reduce power consumption to help clients minimize their carbon footprint and reinvest cost savings into business innovation.

Built in collaboration with HP Labs, the company’s central research arm, the 50,000 square-foot facility will enable HP to explore new strategies for reducing the environmental impact of next-generation data centers. At completion, the site will use technologies to help customers minimize power for the cooling of data centers, while increasing their capacity with less equipment.
