Liberation Technology Services (LTS), a leading provider of innovative data solutions, has forged a groundbreaking partnership with E-New Data Corp., a 100% First Nation-owned private enterprise of the Cree Nation to revolutionise the data centre landscape with the construction of a cutting-edge, environmentally conscious facility in 2024.
The collaborative venture between LTS and E-New Data Corp. is a significant step towards sustainable technology infrastructure. The green edge data centre, situated within the Cree Nation, will leverage state-of-the-art cooling technology to drastically reduce power and water consumption compared to traditional Data Centres. The project aims to set new industry standards for efficiency while making a positive impact on the environment.
One of the key innovations driving this eco-friendly initiative involves recycling the heat generated by the servers within the data centre. Instead of dissipating this energy into the atmosphere, the captured medium will be redirected to support adjacent hydroponics and forestry industries, providing free heat for their operations. This innovative approach not only promotes sustainability but also fosters synergy between technology and traditional industries.
The Waswanipi Cree First Nation stands to benefit significantly from this partnership, as the green edge data centre is designed to cater to the community’s growing technological needs. By creating a robust and sustainable technology infrastructure, the project aims to empower the community and foster economic development. Additionally, the facility will play a pivotal role in supporting local mining operations and Military facilities in the region, contributing to the overall advancement and resilience of the area.
Sam Gull of E-New Data Centre said in a recent interview “E-New Data Centre is gearing up to provide state-of-the-art data services to its clients, while reducing energy costs, using less data in the bandwidth and improving security features. higher-security benefits. The new cutting-edge data centre technology will ensure that environmental sustainability is a priority for Cree people and will reuse the heat to benefit the community by using cooling technology. E-NEW DATA is excited to partner with Liberation Technology Services, Inc. (US Based) to provide an Edge Data Computing Data Centre in the Eeyou Istchee (Northern Quebec) to improve the efficiency and security of Data Services.”
