KT teaming up with Intel to fight power wastage

Telecom titan KT and U.S. chip giant Intel said yesterday they will join hands to develop energy-efficient technology to reduce power consumption at data centers.

The two companies will operate a high-temperature ambient test center in Cheonan, 92 kilometers (57 miles) south of Seoul, ahead of adapting the technology at KT’s data center, the companies said in a joint press release.

Following simulation tests, KT and Intel plan to apply the technology by the end of 2013 to the Cheonan Data Center, one of KT’s eight Internet data centers across the nation, according to Yun Dong-sik, senior vice president at the nation’s top fixed line operator and No. 2 mobile carrier.

The new technology enables data center operation at temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit), allowing operators to cut the electricity costs needed to currently keep the temperature between the optimal 18-21 degrees Celsius range.
