With its scheduled opening late next year, the SRCF will expand the computing capabilities of the university and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The SRCF will provide the university’s research community direct access to high performance computing clusters to support its research, for example genome sequence analysis, protein modeling, computational fluid dynamic simulations, and economic modeling.
An important part of Stanford’s project design plan was to include highly efficient infrastructure wherever possible. Active Power’s CleanSource UPS, using the more efficient 415 volt distribution, will enable the university to achieve its high efficiency requirements without having to sacrifice availability.
“One of the inherent benefits of our patented UPS technology is its industry leading energy efficiency,” said Doug Milner, president and CEO, at Active Power. “This efficiency translates into a tangible economic benefit as it lowers energy costs which directly impact the customer’s bottom line without sacrificing performance. A viable, sustainable product delivered at an overall financial advantage makes for a very compelling offering in today’s marketplace.”
