Hydrogen Racing Team Moves IT Infrastructure to Greenhouse Datacenters
By: Greenhouse Datacenters
Forze Hydrogen Racing is the high-tech hydrogen racing team of students of Delft University of Technology. Forze is one of only two hydrogen racing teams worldwide, participating in the 'traditional' gasoline-powered Dutch Supercar Challenge.
The Forze team consists of over sixty TU Delft students in changing composition, of which 25 each year take a gap year. The team has been working on developing hydrogen-powered racecars since 2007. Their goal is to promote a shift towards clean transportation in the future, with pure water as the only emission.

Server Cluster and NAS
The migration of Forze's cluster of servers to the Greenhouse flagship colocation data center in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands, is now completed. Forze's IT infrastructure includes the server cluster with immense computational power and also a comprehensive Network Attached Storage (NAS) platform with a large number of hard disk drives (HDDs).
"The new co-located data center environment in Greenhouse's flagship colocation facility is a strong improvement with our previous situation. It's not far away from the university campus in Delft actually, only a half hour drive," says Martijn Loonen, Chief Aerodynamics at Forze Hydrogen Racing. "Greenhouse has built an impressive greenfield data center facility in Naaldwijk, with extremely energy efficient operations which seamlessly fits in with our own sustainability drives and goals. The previous cabinet lay-out at the TU Delft university campus was a bit different from our new situation, but the Greenhouse engineers were very helpful in adapting to our new situation."
