Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Datacenter.com, a global provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data center services that paid more than $500,000 for its domain name while achieving a calculated, highly energy-efficient pPUE of 1.04 at their newly commissioned Amsterdam facility, has been nominated by Datacloud Europe under the ‘Excellence in Data Centre Architecture and Design’ award category. The winner of four nominees for this data center architecture award will be announced at the Datacloud Europe 2018 event to be held in Monaco in June.

Datacenter.com’s AMS1 data center, a facility part of a planned targeted global roll-out of large-scale colocation data centers that welcomed its first customers in November 2017, makes use of a unique Indirect Adiabatic Cooling setup as well as the latest Schneider Electric UPS technology. Datacenter.com has uniquely positioned its highly modular cooling infrastructure directly under the raised floor, with a height of 4.7 meters (!!) underneath an aisle containment solution with hot-aisle setup.

The Datacenter.com Amsterdam facility has been nominated for the ‘Excellence in Data Centre Architecture and Design’ award category together with Kao Data, Altice Portugal and WestfalenWIND IT. One of these four data center companies will be selected as an award winner during the Datacloud Europe 2018 award ceremony in Monaco, 12-14 June 2018 (www.datacloudcongress.com).

Datacenter.com’s Architecture

“The first colocation facility commissioned by Datacenter.com, located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, features a truly unique data center architecture,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com. “Part of our global roll-out of data centers in select markets worldwide, this new facility in Amsterdam is engineered according to an innovative data center design with clear objectives – to reduce operational costs; to minimize our carbon footprint; and to offer highly flexible colocation solutions including power and network infrastructure. The result being a highly efficient, on-demand colocation services model delivered by Datacenter.com; a go-to-market model with high energy-efficiency levels and cloud-like elasticity with month-to-month colocation contracts.”

Datacenter.com uses a delta T (temperature between the data hall and the hot aisle) of 11-21 degrees Celcius, and combines this with an airflow of 2-5m/s. “This is a very low airflow rate,” added Mr. Steman. “In our Amsterdam data center, this results in a maximum absorption of the hot air. Our unique setup has resulted in a minimization of cool air loss while providing short air circulation, therefore significantly reducing the power needed in AMS1 while creating an ultra-low calculated pPUE of 1,04.”

To achieve maximum resilience, reliability and security levels, all critical data center infrastructure is installed outside the data hall in AMS1 so there’s no need to enter the data hall for maintenance. Water supply for the data center cooling solution is also located below the floor, so the data center roof is empty. This will prevent leakage from happening or potentially damaging customer equipment.

Modular Cooling Units, Schneider Electric UPS

Datacenter.com works with highly modular and relatively small cooling units. The cooling areas underneath the raised floor are directly below the corridors with hot-aisle setup. Datacenter.com pushes the hot air down towards the cooling engines, enabling the company to cool high density 54U, 11kW+ cabinets (from Schneider Electric) with a slow airflow without any use of compressors.

“These highly modular, small cooling units provide us with a granular cooling infrastructure designed for the highest operational and energy efficiency levels,” added Mr. Steman. “The design allows Datacenter.com to cool high-density 54U 19” cabinets which are fully loaded with servers without any problems. The flexible cooling technology also provides for quick replacement and expansion options of cooling units when needed. This is significantly saving operational costs for Datacenter.com and our customers.”

Schneider Electric’s newest Galaxy VX solution was selected as the central Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) platform for Datacenter.com AMS1. “We have been the first in the Netherlands to use this innovative UPS platform from Schneider Electric for our data centers,” added Mr. Steman. “It actually plays an important role in our overall efforts to reduce energy consumption. The average efficiency of a UPS is about 94,5%, meaning a waste of 6,5%. To reduce this overhead, we evaluated a variety of UPS solutions available in the market and ultimately decided to select the newest Schneider Electric Galaxy VX solution as the central UPS platform for Datacenter.com AMS1.”

“The Schneider Electric Galaxy VX solution helps to reduce power usage overhead in AMS1 to less than 1% in eco-mode, providing significant energy savings and also efficiency and significantly enhanced reliability in UPS operations,” concluded Mr. Steman. “A calculated pPUE figure of 1.04 as a result is a very low thus highly energy efficient figure being achieved. This will set the Datacenter.com Amsterdam AMS1 facility apart from the rest in Amsterdam and beyond in the European data center market. It will also add to the innovative strength within the data center market on a wider scale, as we’re planning to roll-out best-in-class colocation data centers worldwide.”

About Datacenter.com
Datacenter.com’s investors have committed themselves to invest heavily in state-of-the-art data center infrastructure – to meet the market’s growing need for energy efficient, highly interconnected and modular colocation facilities, in which organizations can flexibly and securely host their critical IT infrastructure while cloud computing needs are addressed. Datacenter.com’s customized, reliable and innovative data center solutions are accompanied with the company’s best-in-class customer support.
