Executive Summary

The IBM Design Center Data Center in Poughkeepsie, New York, was running out of cooling capacity and needed to address continuing IT growth requirements. Innovative change was required and transformation of this infrastructure was achieved through IBM's smarter planet and dynamic infrastructure vision. Energy efficiency for data centers has become an imperative area of focus as the price of energy increases and systems grow beyond the capacity of current facilities to supply their power and cooling needs. This paper discusses IT growth and energy efficiency for a case study about the IBM Design Center Data Center and its transformation to the Poughkeepsie Green Data Center.
