Computer Data Center To Heat Nearby Swimming Pool

swimming pool

A new computer center in Switzerland is going to have an additional job by using hot air thrown by servers and communication equipment to heat a local swimming pool next door.

The heat would be funneled to the town pool in Uitikon, Switzerland, outside Zurich and will receive all the heat from the data center recently built by IBM Corp for GIB Services AG. The usually wasted heat is pumped outside while air conditioners struggle to keep the servers cool. Nice to know efficiency is making an impact just about everywhere!
