A sizable bank is trying to cost justify a suggested, large (60,000 sq. foot.) data center based on energy savings accomplished through "Eco-friendly" technology, primarily through water cooling and recovery. The opportunities total about $100 million, offset somewhat by funds recovered in the closing of the older facility. The brand new building is anticipated to spread out with 700 shelves of server computer systems. The energy consumed by each rack is more expensive compared to amortized price of the computer systems themselves. The financial institution needs a 12% return on reduced cash flows.
