Harris Corporation has won the 2011 Green Enterprise IT Award by Uptime Institute for green innovation at the company’s new 140,000 square-foot Cyber Integration Center.
“The Harris Cyber Integration Center (CIC) was engineered and constructed with high availability and energy efficiency as primary goals,” said Robert Whelen, vice president, Real Estate and Environmental, Health and Safety, Harris Corporation. “The green design of the closed-loop system had a capital payback of less than 18 months and results in lower operating costs for the next-generation data center through more efficient cooling.”
The design of the center also resulted in registration under the LEED Green Building Rating System and an expected Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) under 1.36.
Harris and Lee Technologies join 10 other companies recognized in nine categories from among a record number of entries received from around the world. Entries were thoroughly reviewed by a committee of independent judges.
