Data Center Cooling: Bell Canada
Thanks in part to a KyotoCooling® System, Bell Canada and its partner, Urbacon Architecture, were recently awarded the 2012 Green Enterprise IT Award for Facility Design and Innovation by the Uptime Institute. The institute, an independent international research, education and consulting organization focused on the data center industry, recognizes companies that significantly improve energy productivity and resource use in the IT sector. It recognized Bell for the sustainable green building and development practices used in constructing its Ottawa region data center. The data center’s cutting-edge design combines green architectural approaches with energy-efficient operational features, resulting in an industry-leading power usage effectiveness rating of 1.26, including office and meeting rooms.
Data Center Cooling: United Airlines
When United Airlines needed a new data center, it sought one that could withstand severe weather conditions while maintaining the integrity and security of the cooling requirement. It found the solution in the KyotoCooling® System. The system’s design gives the airline — the world’s largest in terms of scheduled passenger-miles flown — a design that supports its commitment to act in a manner that is both fiscally and socially responsible.
Data Center Cooling: BendBroadband Vault
BendBroadband Vault has been receiving a lot of recognition as a result of its partnership with KyotoCooling. The company, which employs full Kyoto Controls™ integration into its data center management, was awarded the Uptime Institute’s Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility. This recognition followed the Tier III Design Certification it received from the institute in March.
Data Center Cooling: KPN
KPN, the leading telecommunications and ICT service provider in the Netherlands, was seeking a data center solution. In response to growing customer needs, the company — which offers wireline and wireless telephony, Internet and TV to consumers and end-to-end telecom and ICT services to business customers — wanted to explore new data center operating models. It sought a model that would meet both environmental and cost challenges, while ensuring mission-critical reliability for at least 15 years.
Data Center Cooling: Hewlett-Packard
Hewlett-Packard’s new Streetsville data center in Mississauga, Canada, is a first for the company. It is HP’s first data center to use KyotoCooling® and the “Kyoto Wheel™ heat exchanger for its primary cooling. The cutting-edge technology reduces the need for mechanical cooling by transferring heat to the outside air stream through an energy recovery wheel heat exchanger.
