Everything began with an idea from Prof. Dr. Beat Wellig, head of “CC Thermische Energiesysteme & Verfahrenstechnik“. He showed me how much the energy efficiency of our Enterprise Lab could be improved. Some drawings on a paper and a few calculations later he came up with a theoretically possible PUE value of 1.1. And ever since I’ve been committed to this idea.
Who are the guys behind the Enterprise Lab? We are a small team of four which do everything from planning to network, storage and virtualization.

As we are changing the way we cool our systems, we had to migrate to a temporary location to keep our most important services up and running. This shot shows the IBM z10 EC and a temporary rack in the background.
