Hear from eBay’s VP of Global Foundation Services as he describes why they partnered with Bloom Energy to power eBay’s Utah Data Center with Fuel Cells. .
Back in 2012, eBay was at a decision point within their infrastructure. They were expanding and building phase 2 of their mission critical data center in Salt Lake City, Utah. With the expansion, eBay had to consider ways to make their mission critical data centers more reliable, resilient and energy efficient. Finding a solution they could trust was critical as all of eBay’s transactions went through their mission critical data center. eBay found that Bloom Energy developed a unique technology that not only helps businesses increase performance, but reduce their carbon footprint, increase energy efficiency and meet their social responsibility needs. Today, eBay has the first data center that relies on fuel cells for primary power and uses the grid as back-up.
