Green High Performance Computing Center"
The Massachusetts Green High
Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC), is a
research computing data center that is being
designed and built in Holyoke, MA by a collaboration
comprising Boston University, MIT, Harvard,
Northeastern, and University of Massachusetts,
as well as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The data center is being designed as a 15 MWatt
facility with a very low carbon footprint. The
project is at entering the final design stage
which will be followed by the generation of
construction documents. Actual construction
is expected to begin late summer of this year.
This talk will present the current state of
the project and will discuss the civil, mechanical,
electrical and cooling systems design and engineering.
