Rob Elder, Director at Keysource, says: “It’s great that a company as large and well known as Facebook has seen the light with regard to the overcooling of data centres. They claim to be using 100% outside air to cool all of their data centres and to have achieved a PUE of 1.07. That’s amazing stuff but you don’t need the huge resources of Facebook to improve your data centre cooling solution.
At Keysource we employ state of the art data centre design tools such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to model the flow of air through our customers’ data centres. This combined with our award winning ecofris solution has helped many clients including The University of Leicester who achieves an annualised PUE of 1.19 and PGS an annualised PUE of 1.15. Not quite Facebook levels but still world class.”
