Using the ambient air of natural surroundings goes a long way in keeping the data center cool and help enjoy savings as well. Companies like Facebook and others have translated this thought process into action by locating their data centers in places like Oregon and Norway that offer cooler climes. While there are plenty of big names in the business of power engineering, one start up is also changing the way data center cooling works. The SMi Group is working out data center cooling by doing things like removing equipment, pressurizing space and blow area directly over the servers and precooling.
The process of moving air efficiently through a pressurized ecosystem helped reduce the energy use by 50%. By reducing the equipment in a data center, construction time has also been reduced significantly. The company also promises to get a data center to function at a PUE between 1.1 and 1.3
The company has simply worked out a new way to apply the principles of thermodynamics and has applied for a patent.
