green cube GSI, darmstadtgermany‘s ultra efficient data center
A high-performance computer center was built for the Helmholz Society for Heavy Ion Research, which is distinguished by deploying unconventional energy supply approaches.
A patented cooling approach that utilizes environmental energy all year round and a flexible, cost-effective and quick-to-build modular steel construction makes this data center a beacon in the German data center landscape.
