NASA seeks input on data center consolidation strategies

The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center wants to look at options for replacing or supplementing existing data centers with more energy-efficient options.

The agency’s request or information was spurred by a federal mandate to consolidate its buildings and a requirement that new construction  must use 30 percent less energy.

Goddard’s strategy is three-fold: data center retrofit technologies and solutions with high return on investment as short term, interim measures; stand-alone containerized data center solutions that meet criteria for two distinct use cases; and modular containerized data center solutions in order to establish a longer-term strategic data center plan.

Vendors need to provide enough data to substantiate any return on investment projections for the changeover.
