According to Rittal utilising the latest in energy efficient cooling technonology has dramatically lowered PUE at Node4’s datacentre at Northampton.
Space for future growth, using the latetst in energy efficient technology, is key to the long term strategy for the site. Working closely with Rittal, Node4 were able to maximise IT floor space using CoolWall technlogy, Cold Aisle Containment and Rittal’s TS IT racks, along with managed Power Distribution Units.
CoolWall was selected over traditional CRAC based cooling as the larger coils increased capacity of cooling whilst driving down running costs at elevated temperatures.
Designed to dramatically reduce PUE and improve the overall efficiency of the data centre, the system offered a further benefit of separate fans for ease of maintenance.
Rik Williams of Node4 said “Working in partnership with Rittal we were able to utilise their technical expertise and speed of supply to deliver the most cost effective solution”.
