Reduce Energy Use at Computer Data Centers

Folsom, California-based tech startup SynapSense Corp. received $10 million in venture funding to pursue the fast-growing market for reducing power consumption at energy-hungry computer data centers.

Founded by former Intel executive Peter Van Deventer and former UC-Davis, computer science professor Raju Pandey, the company monitors heating, cooling and power consumption at large computer data centers with a wireless hardware and software system.

The Synapsense wireless monitoring system allows clients to scatter small devices around a data center to monitor temperature, airflow, humidity and even unclosed doors. The small monitors beam the information to a central computer that displays the information to the energy-use operator.

SynapSense Wireless Green Data Center Solution

The SynapSense Wireless Green Data Center Solution pinpoints the hot spots, and provides data center operators up to one million vital signs per day, which can enable energy and carbon footprint savings of up to 30 percent. These efficiencies are generated by providing new data intelligence, triangulation and software tools to monitor and react to actual data center conditions on a continuous basis.

SynapSense Wireless Solutions are providing companies with the tool required to measure and manage operations of high-energy utilization facilities and global carbon footprint impacts.

Energy efficiency is increasingly important in high-performance buildings including labs, clean rooms and data centers. Virtually all facilities with critical thermal targets are overcooling their environments to ensure adequate operations. And most of these facilities are overcooling by millions of dollars, because they do not have the operational granularity to safely reduce the guard band and more tightly maintain their thermal target.

Community energy demands are increasing and more communities are reporting possibilities of shortages in electrical power availability. With much of the global economy dependent upon products made in or services provided through lab, data center and clean room facilities, improving energy efficiency and services is crucial.

Energy efficiency improvements not only contribute directly to a company’s bottom line, they also provide improved product and service quality, competitive advantage and increased profitability.

Data center operators face the operational issue of having limited, static information sources that do not enable them to effectively manage their dynamically changing global sites. Operators model data center layouts, but these models are often obsolete as soon as any change is introduced to the data center environment. The operators are frequently running blind to actual operating conditions and resiliency risks.

SynapSense also will be working with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to determine a baseline for energy utilization and efficiency for some of the largest data centers in the United States. The U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are working toward setting such benchmarks for 300 of the largest data centers in the country, he said.

Energy efficiency is essential because electricity can be the single biggest expense in a data center's business.

The SynapSense Wireless Green Data Center Solution brings the data center operator and facilities management together, providing both of them with the ability to monitor, dynamically adjust and fine-tune the thermal environment based on real-time information and analytics in their data centers at all times, whether the data centers are in the building or spread across the globe.
