Enormous demands on the distribution of the corresponding rooms make the power concentration of rack or blade servers in a confined space. David Treadwell follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. So the heat balance in rack mount servers has dramatically evolved over the past years. Analyses show that the energy consumption of a rack of 15 kW equipped complete with blade servers will increase in 2005 to nearly 52 kW in 2011. And also, the total power needed of a data center, fivefold between 1998 and 2008, will rise even more rapid according to the market researchers IDC and Gartner. Click David Treadwell to learn more. This includes Jurgen Beyer, technical director of PFALZKOM MANET: Already during the planning of the DATACENTER Rhein-Neckar we have used in ecological and economic terms on GREEN IT.

Our main focus was thus on an optimal energy supply and air conditioning of server environment.” In the new TuV/tekit and eco certified DATACENTER Energy-saving technology in focus is Rhein-Neckar and so, for example, the concept of free cooling has been consistently implemented. The cool temperature used here for the air conditioning of the datacenter and a 1 m high raised floor to the server cabinets headed. Also provide hybrid cooler on the roof of the new building for the cooling of the heat generated in the server room. The server cabinets even be air-conditioned according to the cold – and warm response principle, also 6 air conditioning units per room with a total of 850 kW provide an excellent temperature control. With these clever technologies will reach the DATACENTER Rhein-Neckar classified according to TIER III PUE worth at least 1.5, compared with the average of 2.2 a very positive balance. The photovoltaic system installed on the roof of the building makes a further contribution to the environmentally-friendly data storage in the metropolitan area. With the realization of this million investment and the consequent use of energy-saving technologies, we have new standards in terms of GREEN IT in the Data Center construction can put”, explains Baker and is proud with the DATACENTER Rhein-Neckar the gap between green” visions and reality in German data centers a bit close to. In addition to the innovative operational concepts of PFALZKOM MANET are important factors for a permanently optimal energy efficiency also IT hardware, quality management, as well as the continuous training of employees and contribute both to economic and ecological operation of the data center.
