Nice piece with Jeff Nick about EMCs support for the construction of the High Performance Computing Centre in Holyoke Massachusetts.

Holyoke, an economically underachieving region, has a number of advantages from a technical stand point. Access to high speed communications infrastructure running along the Mass Pike and untapped hydroelectric energy from the the Connecticut River being just two of them.

So the planning team of MIT, University of Massachusetts, Cisco and EMC are currently looking at what they can do to make Hyperscale Green (My name for it, not theirs) a reality.

There’s a win here for the local community who’ll see an influx of construction work and the logistics that’ll require in local goods and services, the academic institutions who’ll have access to a hyperscale laboratory environment and the technology companies who’ll be able to facilitate ongoing R&D and attract new development and engineering talent.

I hope it gets built soon and want to see it when it is. And lets not skimp on the architectural design folks the grey box building is so pre Green IT.

Light, lots of natural light. There’s great light in New England as the seasons change.
