DATA CENTER SAVES 80 PERCENT ON COOLING ENERGY WITH COOLERADO

 

DENVER CO – Coolerado today announced that AISO.net (Affordable Internet Services Online), a Tier III data center, is saving 80 percent in energy costs as a result of air conditioning solutions from Coolerado. Those savings translate into $24,000 annually.

AISO.net replaced their existing CRAC (Computer Room Air Conditioner) unit with three powerful, low-profile Coolerado C60 HMX (Heat Mass Exchange) air conditioning units. The HMX conditions air using indirect and staged evaporative cooling. Indirect means the moisture used to remove heat from the air never touches the product air that is eventually introduced into the cooled space (leaving the delivered air humidity-neutral, as compared to ambient conditions). Staged means the air is cooled in 21 stages, as opposed to all at once, which enables Coolerado to deliver lower temperatures than its competitors. The net result is a cooling product that provides conditioned, humidity-neutral air while consuming only enough energy to power a fan.

“AISO.net has set the standard for green data centers; we are extremely pleased to be a part of their environmentally conscious efforts,” said Tom Teynor, chief executive officer at Coolerado. “We applaud data centers like AISO.net that are relentless about maximizing space, recycling and decreasing their carbon footprint. Coolerado takes great pride in being the AC solution of choice for the green data center or any critical facility committed to dramatically reducing their energy consumption.”

AISO.net utilizes a myriad of green techniques, such as on-site solar panels, that enable the company to run at full capacity – including air conditioning – without plugging into the California power grid. Based on strategic virtualization and consolidation techniques, AISO.net’s physical footprint encompasses one-fifth of the space of comparable data center providers; a comparison of 2,000 square feet versus 10,000 square feet.

“We’ve always been a pioneer in green data center practices and it’s our responsibility to seek out the most energy efficient AC provider,” stated Phil Nail, chief technology officer at AISO.net. “Coolerado air conditioners save us on energy costs and allow us to maximize our technology density while not compromising on performance for our customers. We’ve been able to expand within a much smaller footprint because of virtualization and hospital grade equipment, which give us greater capacity, greater speed, all in a much small footprint – which also equates to less energy usage.  Most companies expand their footprint as they grow, AISO.net’s philosophy is just the opposite: we reduce our footprint as we grow.”
