Advanced Cooling Technology Can Cut Data Centers’ Energy Bills by One-Third

Advanced Cooling Technology Can Cut Data Centers’ Energy Bills by One-Third

Aiming to provide a sustainable solution for the data centers that operate in South-East Asia’s tropical climate, the innovative test-bed is designed around a ‘cutting-edge modular structure’ (that is, container-sized modules that are able to stand alone or be combined with others for more computing power) and with an efficient, tailored cooling system. The cooling system uses the air outside of the data center for cooling whenever possible. This cuts down greatly on the dat center’s air conditioning needs. Outside air can be used effectively whenever the outside temperature is lower than the overheated temperature inside the data center, but most cooling systems instead use solely air conditioning, which is very expensive.
