VMAP has been pleased to support the research of Prof. Ayse Coskun from Boston University.
Her research is focused on datacenter energy consumption reaches 3% of total US electricity use today and increases by 15% every year, costing billions of dollars. Close to half of this cost is for cooling. In addition, high power consumption increases temperature, and high temperatures accelerate reliability degradation. A significant portion of the hardware failures during useful life of chips are currently caused by high temperatures. Such failures do not only cause customer dissatisfaction but also delay delivering results because of the need of rerunning the requested tasks and increase the overall energy use.
