At the Uptime Institute Symposium this week, Jones Lang LaSalle had the pleasure of presenting the Green Enterprise IT Visionary Award to Digital Realty Trust for the construction of a LEED Platinum certified data center in Santa Clara, California. Using full airside economization and other innovative green features, the data center is expected to save 3.5 million kWh and about $250,000 per year.

New this year, the Visionary Award is sponsored and judged by Jones Lang LaSalle, in recognition of an organization that has demonstrated leadership and innovation in reducing energy consumption and promoting sustainability in mission-critical facilities. Although our team works with many companies that deserve recognition, Digital Realty Trust really stands out as a firm that is making a difference. As a Contributing Member of The Green Grid consortium, they support the Power Usage Effectiveness metric for energy efficiency throughout their data center facilities portfolio. And that’s just part of their green datacenter vision.

I hope you’ll join me in recognizing Digital Realty Trust’s drive to remove excess energy use, cost and associated greenhouse gases from its data center portfolio.
