Yahoo! has donated 44 servers to Centre for Ocean Energy Research at the NUI Maynooth. The machines are enabling research that was previously impossible in data-intensive computing. At NUI Maynooth, the servers will be crunching data on renewable ocean wave power.
The donation is part of Yahoo!’s Y! STAR programme (Yahoo! Servers To Academic Researchers) under which Yahoo! is refurbishing and donating decommissioned servers to university researchers. Yahoo! has already donated over 1,500 servers to 23 of the top universities in the USA. The shipment to NUI Maynooth is the first in Europe.
