ITTC Project

Maximizing the Utilization of Renewable Energy to Optimize the Soft-Error Robustness of GPGPU-based Data Centers

Project Award Date: 05-01-2012


The data centers consume tremendous amount of power with the rapid growth to support various services such as cloud computing. It will exacerbate the global energy crisis and lead to serious concerns on the environment and the climate change of our planet (e.g. global warming). Recently, renewable energy is receiving increased attentions due to its advantages such as absence of fuel cost and it is environmental friendly. The designers have started to consider using it to operate the data centers.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
