...with a professor in a lab! But it is not science fiction. It actually happened at the CERN particle accelerator where Prof. Dr. Volker Lindenstruth researched back in the first decade of this century.
He faced a number of challenges that everyone working in the data center industry knows very well:
• low budgets
• high power requirements, and
• fast completion demands.
While no solution on the market seemed to be able to cope with his special requirements, he simply developed his own … a unique combination of cooling technology and building design that is now at the core of the NDC Cube. The underlying patents are today owned and commercialized by NDC IP Holding.
Coming from the technology side, we soon discovered that data centers are closer situated to real estate than one might consider. As a result, NDC Data Centers partnered with GARBE Industrial Real Estate, one of the key players in the industrial real estate business in Europe. By doing so, we can now offer a game-changer combination of technology and real estate know-how within a single company: NDC-GARBE Data Centers Europe.
But there’s still more to come … stay tuned!
