March 22 is International Data Center Day! Did you know that data centers account for 2% of the total U.S. electricity use?

Currently, we are designing a hyperscale data center for a utility company, which is the highest level of service a data center can offer. The bigger the data center, the more energy it consumes. Check out some of the ways we are reducing energy consumption and the carbon footprint for one of our clients!
