Description

Welcome to this news update where we'll take a look some case-studies that underwrite EcoCooling's claim that their direct-Air Evaporative Cooling Becomes has becoming the new mainstream choice for Data Centre cooling. Did you know that EcoCooling have announced their two hundredth IT installation as direct evaporative cooling becomes the go-to choice for energy efficient data centres? Data centre engineers, by nature, are very cautious and it has taken a number of years for the EcoCooling Computer Room Evaporative Cooler or CREC solution to be accepted as a safe and reliable alternative to expensive refrigeration-based CRAC cooling. "Serve The World" now joins a list of highly respected data centre operators able to operate with PUEs of 1.2 or less regardless of the level of occupancy in the data centre. Just one example is Aberdeen University's Data Centre which uses EcoCooling CRECs to achieve an impressive PUE of less than 1.1. This has led Aberdeen University to win Data Centre Project of the Year in the BCS and Computing UK IT Industry Awards, where they beat competition from Tesco, Capital One and the NHS. Other data centres which have grasped the power and cost savings offered by the EcoCooling CREC technology include Unum, Cambridge University, Cap Gemini, Experian and UK telecoms giants BT and TalkTalk. Within the two-hundred installations there are data centres with power consumptions from 10kW to 1MW. For a 1MW installation the EcoCooling CREC solution would require only around 40kW of power compared to as much as 1MW with conventional CRAC cooling. Off the back of these successful installations, EcoCooling launched their new 15kW evaporative cooler prototype at Data Centre World 2014. The prototype EcoCooling evaporative cooler requires a mere four-hundred watts to remove 15kW of heat, potentially reducing cooling costs by £10,000 per year compared to traditional air conditioning systems. The final product, due for release in May, is expected to match if not exceed this impressive performance.
