When you walk into the Feynman Computing Center data center, you can immediately sense the large amounts of energy running the machines. In the continuous effort to be more environmentally friendly and to improve our data center operations, the Computing Facilities team took on multiple projects this year that increased the reliability, enhanced the energy efficiency and reduced the cost of running our data centers.

On Dec. 2, 1988, a brand-new building was added to the Fermilab campus: the Feynman Computing Center. Its dedication coincided with the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking for the National Accelerator Laboratory, which was celebrated with a full slate of activities, including speeches, visits from consul generals, politicians and other officials, and a celebration in the atrium.
