Evaporative Cooling Data Centre Case Studies
Cooling the Data centre - Netwise Hosting
Netwise Hosting are a colocation data centre based in Sutton Surrey
EcoCooling were called in because the company were concerned about the running costs and environmental impact of conventional refrigeration units.
They also had an issue with power due to the location of the site and needed to maximise the power usage for the data centre racks.
3 EcoCooling CRECs were used to provide cooled air to the data centre which uses a hot and cold aisle containment system.
3 ducted extraction fans provide extract for the hot air directly from the hot aisles.
The new system provides a PUE of 1.15 and is expected to save the company over £33,000 pa in electricity and over 214 tonnes of carbon compared to conventional refrigeration units.
