Description 

After identifying a suitable data center test site, this sub-project Da will test that site’s DR capability and scale up to implementing DR in a real data center running real workloads. Tests will focus on three measures: 1) Software that reduces computer server demand (kW) in an automated DR event. 2) Localized liquid cooling of data center computer equipment. 3) Replacement of data center computer equipment with energy-efficient, next-generation systems
