Blog // November 23, 2023

We are delighted to announce a pivotal development in the realm of digital infrastructure as etalytics and Equinix embark on an extended collaboration, specifically aimed at enhancing energy efficiency across data centers.

Our Pioneering Journey Since 2020

Our collective journey began in 2020, well ahead of the regulatory landscape for energy efficiency in data centers. Our mission? To revolutionize energy consumption in Equinix’s FR6 data center. How? Through etalytics’ cutting-edge AI software, which is meticulously designed to monitor and optimize the energy supply crucial for the cooling infrastructure of data centers.

A Milestone Achieved: 48% projected reduction of energy demand in the cooling system

Today, we stand proud as the results of our endeavors materialize — our AI-driven software has achieved a remarkable 48% projected reduction of energy demand in the cooling system at Equinix’s FR6 data center. The significance is underscored by Equinix being honored with the prestigious Energy Efficiency Award 2023 from the German Energy Agency (dena). This recognition speaks volumes about our collaborative efforts and unwavering commitment to sustainability within the digital infrastructure sector.

Thrilled to Expand: A Vision for a Sustainable Digital Future

Building on the success in FR6, we’re now expanding our collaboration with Equinix. Our next move? Taking the innovative solutions developed in the pilot project and implementing them in nearly all International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in Frankfurt. It’s a collective step towards reducing CO2 emissions and contributing to a more sustainable digital future.
