Located in rural Staffordshire, England, Keele University is recognised as one of Europe’s most sustainability-driven universities. As part of the University’s pledge to be carbon neutral by 2030, they have been working with industry partners to make their on-site IT infrastructure as energy efficient and low-carbon as possible.
- Energy and space saving
- Low emissions supply chain
- Data centre supported by 100% locally generated renewable resources
Keele University currently operates two data centres, with one being within a newly built Innovation Centre (IC7). This will place the two data centres at opposite ends of the Keele University campus, thereby enhancing resilience and redundancy should any disaster or emergency situation occur. In the effort to modernise the university’s data centres, the team turned to long-time partner Vertiv to help boost energy efficiency.
