To achieve 'green' results that make a long-term impact, a data center needs to be viewed holistically - from its design, electrical and mechanical systems and the materials used to the selection, utilization and maintenance of equipment.

Randy Ortiz, Vice President of Data Center Design and Engineering for Internap, will provide an in-depth view into the design and construction of Internap’s Green Globes and LEED certified Silicon Valley data center, as well as its new Dallas (Plano) facility, which was recently Green Globes certified. He will walk attendees through the process of making the facility as energy efficient as possible, and will discuss topics ranging from site selection, development and design, and ongoing maintenance.

Built with scalability in mind, Internap’s advanced data center facilities offer a superior modular design allowing for enhanced flexibility and increased reliability. State-of-the-art technology provides for high density power and high efficiency cooling options, while advanced security and protection features ensure that customer data is 100 percent secure.
