Engineers must consider many factors when designing power and electrical systems for data centers.
A co-location facility is explained, piece by piece.
Co-location data centers lease space for IT equipment, power, cooling, and bandwidth. In addition to being cost-efficient, one of the most important obligations of the co-location owner is to provide continuous high-quality electrical power.
This presentation will highlight the advances made in critical infrastructure technologies for chillers and cooling plants, AHUs, and modular approaches to achieve significant operating and energy expense savings.
