Explore the Oregon Health and Science University Data Dome at the December Building Energy Simulation Forum

Companies managing their own data centers are often challenged by a large energy footprint and high maintenance costs. Many times, these data centers also lack the versatility to accommodate emerging technologies. The 4-megawatt Data Center West—often called the Data Dome—at Oregon Health and Science University, OHSU, is an exception to the rule, and a marvel of modern technology and efficiency. It combines world-class power and operational efficiency with game-changing energy cost savings and a unique next-generation design.

Our December Building Energy Simulation Forum offers a closer look at the “Data Dome” with guest speaker Perry Gliessman of OHSU. Gliessman will discuss the innovative design and operational approaches that enable this Tier 3+ data center to achieve very low power usage while providing unprecedented operational flexibility and agility. The presentation will focus on the documented performance of this unique design during its first 18 months of operation.
