When it comes to having a true pioneer spirit, there are few who would argue that the State of Montana isn't afraid to seize a golden opportunity. And in a state where more millionaires lived (per capita) than any other city in the world at the turn of the 20th century, Helena, Montana is now home to a whole new kind of goldmine - that of the first-ever United States data center to utilize the innovative data center cooling technique known as KyotoCooling®.
To highlight this groundbreaking achievement (not to mention the downright amazing cost savings!), Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI) is proud to extend this personal invitation to join the State of Montana as they host the first-ever U.S.KyotoCooling Conference this October 25-26, 2011 at the Red Lion Colonial Hotel in Helena.
Not only will attendees have the chance to meet and speak with the team responsible for implementing this impressive thermal cooling solution, you'll be able to tour the data center site, engage in expert presentations by industry experts such as Robert "Dr. Bob" Sullivan, Ian Seaton and Mees Lodder, witness the highly efficient KyotoCooling energy recovery wheel in action, and see (and feel!) for yourself how the State of Montana is now enjoying "cooling-only" PUEs of less than 1.1!
Better still, while being supported by CPI Passive Cooling® Solutions and infrastructure storage, this one-of-a-kind data center is now the benchmark for similar data center sites in the U.S. turning to this proven thermal cooling solution, including the Bend Broadband facility in nearby Bend, Oregon, which just recently received the prestigious Tier IIIcertification from the Uptime Institute - thanks in large part to KyotoCooling supported by CPI's hot air isolation.
Having toured the facility in Montana ourselves, there's certainly a wealth of key information and insights yet to share. How did the state decide on using a thermal solution which first made its mark in Europe? Just why is passive cooling the perfect complement to this kind of energy recovery wheel technique? And how has the State of Montana fulfilled their internal energy efficiency goals thanks to this new data center? We'll be covering all this and more in the weeks and months leading up to the big event - but trust us, there's no substitute for seeing this installation in person - on us!
