Cooling System

Kao Data Campus has implemented N+1 Indirect Evaporative Cooling (IEC) units, providing highly efficient climate control, while offering a resilient back-up capability in the unlikely scenario of a unit failure. Customer cabinets are in enclosures and utilise hot aisle containment, which enables higher density racks, up to 20kW, to be optimised using industry leading cooling technologies.

The cooling infrastructure is designed around a conservative delta-T:12°K, whilst our data centres also benefit from the application of innovative free-cooling technologies resulting in increased reliability, higher energy efficiency, increased sustainability and lower operating costs over the life-cycle of the facility.

The campus is compliant with the ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines (2011 and 2015) including the International Society for Automation Environmental Conditions for Process Measurement & Control Systems: Airborne Contaminants (ISA 71.04 (2013)).
