EvoSwitch Datacenter design and adiabatic cooling discussed DataCenterDynamics Amsterdam conference
Jan Wiersma, our Technical Director, attended the DataCenterDynamics conference in Amsterdamon tuesday. The finest brains in the industry gathered there to discuss the future of the datacenter industry, changing customer requirements, and the latest technical advances. It was a great opportunity for the industry to share ideas and learn from each other.
Jan was one of the key speakers on new datacenter design, and specifically talked about developments in cooling techniques, such as adiabatic cooling. This technique cools outside air when it enters the the datacenter (or datacenter module), as opposed to traditional cooling methods which chill entire rooms. As you can understand, this is a much more energy-efficient way of cooling, leading to PUEs of 1.2 and lower.
EvoSwitch is recognized as one of the most energy-efficient datacenters in Europe.In addition to being climate neutral, the datacenter is also carrier neutral. Ourcustomers already have a choice of more than 35 international carriers, with thisnumber set to increase to over 50 on-site carriers by the end of the year. Thisensures we provide the best available options in connectivity to our customers,who in turn then prioritize their telecom providers and build a global infrastructurethat really fulfills their requirements best.
Choice in connectivity is absolutely critical to companies looking for a trulyredundant infrastructure. Our datacenter is conveniently located in the Amsterdamregion next to one of the largest internet hubs in the world, AMS-IX, and is thusclosely connected to a large number of trans-Atlantic fibers. And thanks to therising number of supplying carriers, connectivity within the datacenter is alsosignificantly increasing. Carrier neutrality means independency and transparencyfor customers, ensuring they have real freedom of choice in working with a provideror even a combination of providers. This way customers can get the best globalinfrastructure and connectivity, rather than just being able to choose from a selectfew.
