Tokyo, September 29, 2009 – Fujitsu (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Michiyoshi Mazuka) and Fuji Electric Systems (Headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Mitsunori Shirakura) today announced that they have jointly developed technologies for designing eco-friendly datacenters.
The technologies include a datacenter operation management system with energy consumption visualization technology, as well as a spot air conditioning system which prevents hot spots from emerging inside the datacenter (patents pending). These technologies promise to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% (*1) for IT facilities, including buildings, machine rooms, power supplies and air conditioners, which collectively account for over half of datacenter energy consumption.
The two companies plan to employ these technologies as the basis for an eco-friendly datacenter solutions business. Fujitsu Limited is currently applying these technologies at the new wing of its Tatebayashi System Center facility, in Tatebayashi, Gunma Prefecture, due to open in November 2009.
The technologies will be exhibited at the Fujitsu booth at CEATEC Japan 2009 from October 6–10 at Makuhari
