The data center facility has two highly efficient and powerful cooling systems. The air-cooling system acts as a backup to the primary water-cooling system.Each air-cooling chiller is equipped with economization functions. On the data center floor, custom-built 100-ton computer room air handlers (CRAHs) are used to cool high-density compute racks. These CRAHs can automatically bypass the chiller plant and use outside air when conditions are appropriate.

WATER-CHILLER UNITS

cmn_en_img_services_virtual-tours_us-virginia-ashburn-1_42

The primary cooling plant is a chilled water system that employs an innovative design with three sources of water for maximum reliability and cost-efficiency. The primary water source is an on-site well. The secondary source is a unique reclaimed water line (also known as "gray water") developed with the local water utility. The third source of water is standard potable water from the utility. This water-cooling plant is also equipped with economization functions for greater efficiency.
