South Africa’s climate is hostile to running efficient data centers: the high average temperatures limit the amount of cooling that can be provided by outside air, so facilities usually have to resort to alternative, energy-intensive cooling systems.
Colocation provider Teraco has just opened the largest commercial data center in Africa, near Johannesburg. While it was building the Riverfields facility, the company updated its Isando 7 data center, which boasts a PUE that would be the envy of providers in similar climates. Join this session and find out what technologies they used to optimise their energy efficiency, including chilled water cooling, DCIM and more.
