New cooling solutions offered for colocation, cloud-hosting data centers
Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, has introduced three high-capacity cooling solutions for the growing colocation and cloud hosting data center markets, enabling providers to save money, reduce risks and more easily manage their facilities.
The products are designed to be rapidly deployable and scalable, while using new heat exchanger or pumped refrigerant technologies that maximize operational efficiency and minimize or eliminate water usage, according to a release. They are:
· Liebert® EFC Indirect Evaporative Freecooling Solution in 400kW capacity, available now globally
· Liebert DSE Packaged Freecooling System in 400kW capacity, available now in North America
· Liebert DSE Freecooling System in 250kW capacity, available in January 2018 in the Americas and Asia/Pacific
Nearly 60 percent of enterprise data center managers report that they will increase their use of colocation and cloud hosting over the next 12 months, and cost and scalability are in the top four attributes customers use to select a colocation provider, according to the Colocation Data Center Usage Report from Vertiv.
All of the new solutions provide new levels of performance and value for colocation and cloud hosting facilities, officials said. Their benefits include greater energy savings, lower total cost of ownership, rapidly deployable configurations, and low peak power requirements providing more available IT power capacity.
All of this is accomplished through indirect economization while not allowing outside air to directly enter the facility. Separately, they offer different advantages for different applications.
Each system uses integrated Liebert ICOM controls that feature advanced algorithms and automated routines for protection and efficiency, and make these systems easier to operate. The controls harmonize multiple cooling systems and enable quick adaptation to load changes and ambient temperatures.
The controls fine-tune room cooling by optimizing temperature and airflow and selecting the most appropriate operating mode based on external environmental conditions and desired service level agreements (SLAs) or management parameters.
