IT systems in data centers are consuming much energy, but when you work in the data center industry you get a lot of energy back! How ? It is just … Continue reading Combining innovation and availability in our data center
The data center industry is a rookie compared with many other industries. It’s about twenty years young, but when you look what this industry did especially in the last … Continue reading It’s time for the next step, the reuse of energy
More and more I see articles about building data centers in cold, but isolated areas because of the “free”cooling. The last years we have successfully optimized cooling installations in the … Continue reading Data centers in cold but isolated places
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.
It’s up to the IT now to become more energy efficient
A large datacenter like Schuberg has, uses millions liters of cooling water every year and lots of chemical additives to prevent scale formation in the water cooling system. In search … Continue reading More than 90% reduction of discharge water and chemical free in the Schuberg Philis data center
Woensdag 17 mei was het Gebruikersplatform Bodemenergie te gast bij Schuberg Philis, leverancier van ICT-diensten, voor een uitwisseling van kennis over bodemenergie bij datacenters. Circa 40 geïnteresseerden vanuit verschillende beroepsgroepen … Continue reading Leerzame bijeenkomst over kansen WKO-systemen bij datacenters
What we have learned about the replacement of a 12-year old cooling installation within the existing Schuberg Philis data center without any downtime for the IT-systems customers and keep optimizing since the commissioning.
At Schuberg Philis and atom86, we make use of a combination of both cooling towers and Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) to cool our data center in a very efficient … Continue reading Using heat from a data center to remove ice from cooling towers
