Nautilus' Floating Data Center Demonstrates Power and Cost Saving Methodology

PLEASANTON, CA: It is essential for enterprises that depend on achieving business critical continuity to choose the right data center cooling system. Nautilus Data Technologies, an infrastructure company that provides next generation data centers announces the construction of a Waterborne Data Center Solution prototype that will offer hosting, colocation and cloud services for primary computing needs , business continuity and disaster recovery services.

 The company will be the first in the global data center industry to deploy the waterborne data center prototype and the solution will enable enterprises to reduce the cost of computing as it provides power usage effectiveness (PUE).The Floating Data Center has claimed to demonstrate a 30 percent decrease in energy consumption and operating costs when compared to land-based facilities. Greater water savings were also observed.

In data centers, cooling is a major cost factor. If cooling is implemented poorly, the power required to cool a data center can match or exceed the power used to run the IT equipment itself. Data centers depend on massive amounts of water for cooling.

The company will help its customers to reduce data center expenses and carbon footprints with its suite of cloud and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) technologies.

The disaster-resistant, marine- grade Water Borne Data Center solutions will be placed on Coast Guard certified barges and will use naturally-cooled water below the barge to reduce the temperature in the facility. This will also allow to recycle the water and return it directly back into the body of water from where it originated, resulting in virtually no water loss.

"The Nautilus proof of concept prototype exceeded all expectations -- validating how our waterborne approach will provide the most cost effective, energy efficient and environmentally sustainable data center on the market, our innovations are the most significant data center advances in decades -- marking a revolutionary change in the data center industry," says Arnold Magcale, CEO and Co-founder, Nautilus Data Technologies.
