Although the two aspects of this topic - Data Centers and Green Design - seem almost antithetical to each other, a properly designed data center makes good use of sustainable design. With a limited amount of incremental effort, those already sustainable design efforts can be paired with a good working knowledge of LEED to provide a LEED certified critical facility environment.
