KyotoCooling Hits Close to Home
February 29, 2008
Next month in the Netherlands a seminar is being held where a panel of data center experts will be discussing the KyotoCooling concept. The Netherlands may be a long way from where you are, but the concept hits close to home if you are concerned about data center cooling and energy conservation.
The KyotoCooling solution, which was first unveiled at last year's Power and Cooling Summit in London, UK, reduces electrical usage and decreases the carbon footprint for cooling data centers by more than 80 percent while providing a means to air cool power densities four to five times higher than previously claimed possible.
Ian Seaton, CPI’s Technology Marketing Manager and Bob Sullivan of the Uptime Institute, along with other cooling experts will present the solution during two-day KyotoCooling Seminars being held March 25-26, 27-28 and April 2-3, 2008 in Amersfoort, Netherlands.
At the center of the KyotoCooling solution is CPI’s F-Series TeraFrame™ Cabinet which is designed to provide ultimate cooling by isolating the room’s cold air and hot exhaust air. By doing this, you are able to cost-effectively air cool cabinets with heat loads in excess of 20 kW while raising the computer room HVAC supply temperature from a typical 55 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
According to Seaton this revolutionary data center design concept can reduce cooling energy consumption while simultaneously providing for higher densities and tier 4 availability, all at a lower total construction cost. A KyotoCooling data center has a “day one” payback and a 3 megawatt data center can deliver an operating and capital expense ROI over $9 million in five years. Read a case study.
