It’s again more than 5 years ago that we started not using compressor cooling in our atom86 & Schuberg Philis data center.

How cool is that when you consider there are still data centers build these days using chillers which are consuming to much electricity.

In stead of chillers we use cooling towers and aquifer thermal energy storage systems which provided us 100% cooling.
