INFOBUNKER COMPLETES HVAC UPGRADE
March 28th 2012
Des Moines, Iowa – November 10, 2011: InfoBunker, one of the most secure & cost-effective data centers in the Midwest is now one of the most energy efficient. InfoBunker has now completed a ground-breaking HVAC upgrade enabling cooling of the entire colocation facility, up to ten months out of the year, using nothing more than filtered outside air. This $250,000 systems modification enables InfoBunker to pass even greater savings along to its clients and to stake a claim as one of the ‘Greenest' data centers in the nation.
“Our focus is to maintain 100% uptime and safeguard our client’s mission-critical data & systems. This upgrade provides even greater reliability and redundancy in addition to substantial energy savings. Best of all, it was completed with zero interruptions in client services,” said Jason McGinnis, President & Chief Technology Officer.
InfoBunker previously utilized standard HVAC with air-side economizers and was actively seeking additional efficiencies. InfoBunker now has a total 2Nx2 cooling deliverable via segregated paths and mediums, allowing full redundancy across all cooling paths, regardless of exterior conditions, making the data center among the most fault-tolerant in the nation.
“All of these systems combined give us the ability to harness ambient air in a reliable and precise manner to meet client needs,” said McGinnis. The new system includes an industry-leading, facility-wide digital control & monitoring system that can automatically adjust finished air quality based on 50+ data points via monitors located at 17 locations throughout the building.
The opportunity to free-cool the facility came on the heels of the new ASHRAE data center standards. The company chose to seize the opportunity to further reduce operating costs, improve their energy-efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint.
“We believe in passing savings to our clients and shielding them from cost increases whenever possible. Having our data center now running at a 1.2 PUE is something we take great pride in, but having the highest uptime and some of the lowest prices in the Midwest makes us even happier,” said Jeff Daniels, Executive Vice President.
