Keeping The Data Center Cool
The original Falken Tire data center was designed with traditional open airflow that kept hot air blowing all over the place, Braico said.
IMT replaced it with a cooling solution based on the APC InfraStruXure platform, including APC's racks, UPS and cooling equipment. The cooling system was designed with N+1 redundancy so that the loss of a cooling device would not be an issue, Braico said.
Garcia said the average room temperature is set for 68 degrees, with an alarm set to go off if the temperature exceeds 80 degrees. "It has never gone off," he said.
