Neerja Raman writes that Hewlett Packard’s new data cooling technology has found it home, not in Silicon Vally or the offices of Google in Mountain View, but rather in the heart of India 2.0 Bangalore.
Because in Bangalore, just like in other big cities in India, with its poor infrastructure and intermittent power supply, you get data center up time of 24/7 by supplementing grid electricity with diesel burning generators – which is expensive – more so than grid electricity in PA. And so economically it makes more sense to refine/test it there. Additional benefits of course are emissions reduction etc.
