Arvato Systems receives German Data Center Prize 2014 from the jury.
The German Data Center Prize awards innovative and visionary products and projects that lead to more efficient energy use in the data center. This year, Arvato Systems convinced the jury with its Green IT concept and honours the systems integrator from Gütersloh in the category “Modifications to an Existing Data Center to Increase Energy Efficiency”. The project submitted by Arvato Systems described the energy-efficiency IT modifications and conversion measures applied to the data center covering an area of 5,000 m2. The result: more than two million kWh in savings at the end of the year. The energy savings in the data center was twice as high as originally envisaged. Jesko Jacobs took the prestigious prize on behalf of Arvato Systems at the gala in Frankfurt.
At least as gratifying was the fact that the company came second in the category “Audience Award”. Not only the professional jury, but also the participants of the online voting have been convinced by Arvato Systems.
