Data centre wins gold award for its environmental design

Data centre wins gold award for its environmental design
For the third time, a green-energy data centre at the University of St Andrews has achieved the highest level of award for its performance and environmental design. Following a rigorous re-assessment process this summer the University has retained the GOLD award under the Certified Energy Efficient DataCenter Award (CEEDA) Scheme. Built at a cost of £2.4m, the data centre was opened in 2011, with the aims of carbon neutrality for energy supply, reducing energy usage and costs, and providing an efficient, reliable and scalable facility.

Funding available to improve remote access to sensitive data

Funding available to improve remote access to sensitive data
In order to support, strengthen and widen remote access to sensitive data held by data centres across the UK, the University of St Andrews has been granted £1.5m from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) to create and manage a new Micro Safe Settings Network (MSSN). Typically, research access to sensitive data can only take place in tightly controlled safe settings where the privacy of the data subjects can be assured.

SWiM: an evolution in one-handed texting

SWiM: an evolution in one-handed texting
The growing popularity of mobile devices with large screens – called "phablets" – and also small screen wearable devices, such as smartwatches, is making interacting with them with one hand increasingly difficult. This is especially true when trying to input text with one hand. Computer scientists at the University of St Andrews have come up with the solution – a tilt-based gesture keyboard text entry technique that supports entering one word per gesture.

Making smartwatches easier to use

Making smartwatches easier to use
A system for making smartwatches and fitness-trackers easier to use, created by computer scientists at the University of St Andrews, could transform the technology for users without the need to buy new hardware. WatchMI allows wearers to access functions on their watch using a wider range of actions: for example by twisting the watch face, applying pressure to the screen, or by panning the watch to the right or left.
