Whilst it is essential to keep the temperature of hardware under control, cooling the whole area of the data rooms would result in a significant waste of energy.
The system we use for cooling the racks and therefore the servers and other equipment is the result of an extremely efficient containment of the flows of incoming cold air and outgoing hot air. Special ducts ensure that the cold air is only used for the front area of the rack, which is isolated from the data room.
You can visit our data centers in Italy and the Czech Republic.
