Welcome to Cloudberry Day

Published: 12 March 2019

Welcome to an information meeting about Cloudberry Datacenters. During the meeting the research center as a whole as well as its different subprojects will be presented.

When: May 10, 2019, at 8.30-12.30
Where: Luleå University of Technology, Luleå, D-building, Room: D770
How could a data center be built differently in order to reduce energy consumption? How can we use waste heat from server halls? And what kind of software architecture is needed to increase energy efficiency? These are some of the many questions that the research groups at Luleå University of Technology and RISE are trying to find out in Cloudberry Datacenters.

The research covers everything from energy systems, software, data clouds to research on buildings, cooling and energy recycling. Cloudberry Datacenters research is unique because of its interdisciplinary and holistic approach to data centers. 
The goal is to become a hub for research, development, knowledge and implementation in the data center area. While large-scale data centers require huge amounts of energy, Cloudberry Datacenters is also working to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by developing new technologies, processes, methods and strategies for increased energy efficiency.


8.30 Welcome. Presentation of the research center 

9.00 Research presentations of Cloudberry Datacenter's subprojects:

1. Datacenter's interaction with the national energy system
2. Multifunctional data centers
3. Quality and credibility when simulating cooling in data centers
4. Transient simulations of data center dynamic thermal management arrangements
5. Evaluation of energy recovery solutions for data centers
6. Design of distribution networks for energy efficient data center operations

10.30 Coffee break

11.00 Research presentations continues:

7. Data centers impact on the electricity market when the amount of renewable
electricity augment
8. Flexible and large-scale simulation of interaction between district heating
and remote cooling networks and data centers
9. Proximity liquid cooling inside data centers for direct heat recovery 
10. Automated maintenance of energy-efficient data centers
11. Resource efficiency in software processes and communication in data clouds and data centers
12. Resource efficiency in distributed ledgers and smart contracts

12.30 End of meeting

12.30-13.30 Common lunch at your own expense

About Cloudberry Datacenters
The purpose of Cloudberry Datacenters is to develop new knowledge about energy and resource-efficient data centers by conducting high-quality research. The overall goal is to generate research results and knowledge that help to streamline energy use in data centers, reduce global carbon dioxide emissions and contribute to a more efficient energy system as a whole. Cloudberry is financed by The Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten), Region Norrbotten, Skellefteå Kraft, Umeå Energi, and five municipalities (Boden, Luleå, Piteå, Skellefteå, and Älvsbyn).
