The Flux HPC cluster is housed in the Modular Data Center. The University of Michigan was the first organization to build a data center using HP's EcoPod modules. The University has seen significant savings in energy costs due to the use of outside air in the cooling system. Photo courtesy of U-M Information and Technology Services.
