(The Hosting News) – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (http://www.us.logicalis.com), applauds President Obama’s effort to combat climate change and congratulates its client, BendBroadband Vault, a colocation and virtualization provider, on earning the EPA’s coveted ENERGY STAR rating for data centers. The rating was earned for the company’s state-of-the-art, 30,000-square-foot, SSAE 16-reviewed data center employing an autonomous air-to-air heat-exchange cooling solution and its own on-site solar generation plant. As businesses look for ways to meet new federal guidelines for reducing their impact on climate change, BendBroadband’s Logicalis-designed data center is leading the way as the only ENERGY STAR certified data center in the Northwest, providing a shining example of energy efficiency for high-tech data centers worldwide.

Only eight colocation facilities in the nation have earned ENERGY STAR certification to date. The dramatic reduction in CO2 emissions from ENERGY STAR certified data centers is becoming more important as the world’s hunger for data drives increased levels of energy consumption. Studies show that data centers currently consume up to 5 percent of the world’s energy – as much energy as all the airlines combined. As a result, Bob Mobach, Practice Director, Data Centers, for Logicalis US, says pressure is increasing on the IT industry to reduce its energy footprint on its own initiative or face government regulation.

A veteran designer of data center facilities, Logicalis’ Mobach is acutely aware of the environmental and financial impact of the escalating amount of energy data centers consume. “Logicalis is at the forefront of energy efficiency and social responsibility, exemplified by our involvement in projects like the BendBroadband Vault,” Mobach says. “Companies are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on electricity costs in the data center, and they have to become more energy efficient. That’s one of the biggest messages we keep preaching to our customers: You can run a mission-critical data center that is energy efficient and socially responsible. The technical capabilities deployed by Logicalis in milestone projects like the BendBroadband Vault are also directly reflected in our cloud readiness and strategic data center assessments, tools we use with customers every day to help improve their data center efficiencies as well.”

Logicalis’ blueprint for the BendBroadband Vault exemplifies the high levels of energy efficiency possible when data centers are designed with the innovative use of existing technologies. Logicalis took responsibility for the entire process, including the design, engineering, integration and overall management – including selecting, writing RFPs and coordinating construction.

As a result, the Vault is a showcase of sustainable energy technologies. Key components include:

  • A 900kW Kyoto autonomous air-to-air heat-exchange cooling solution. The largest installation of its kind in North America, the Kyoto system for the Vault requires no water and takes advantage of cool desert nights to contribute as much as 85 percent of required cooling.
  • On-site solar generation plant. With 320 sunny Central Oregon days per year, the Vault array produces 152kW of electricity. The photovoltaic array is the largest in the region and produces enough energy to support all ancillary – non-IT – energy demands.
  • Flywheel-driven uninterruptible power supply (UPS) technology is battery free.
  • Smart LED lighting throughout automatically adjusts to take advantage of daylight. Sensors respond to activity within the center and automatically shut off lights when they are not needed.
  • There are no conventional cages in the Vault. Custom heat containment Performance-Optimized Data Center (POD) containers were designed with passive cooling systems in collaboration with Chatsworth Products, Inc.

“We are very proud that our data center has earned the EPA ENERGY STAR rating, and the fact that we can play a part in other companies’ initiatives to reduce their carbon footprint,” says Sean Handley, Business Sales Director for BendBroadband. “We would not have achieved such a prestigious honor without the help of Logicalis.”

In addition to its brand-new ENERGY STAR rating, the BendBroadband Vault has qualified for Uptime Institute TIER-3 Design & Facility certification, has implemented safeguards that are in line with HIPAA guidelines, has been featured in a project profile on the U.S. Green Building Council’s website, and has earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED certification provides third-party verification that a building is designed and built using responsible strategies for energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emission reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. The Logicalis-designed BendBroadband Vault is truly a 100 percent carbon neutral facility as it offsets its small remaining carbon footprint into a forestry preserve.

(The Hosting News) – COLO@ today announced that they will begin the second phase of expansion at their ATL2 datacenter at 34 Peachtree St. in Atlanta, GA. The expansion at the COLO@ headquarters comprises several areas of infrastructure upgrades and improvements. While the facility already boasts fully redundant power, network, and cooling capabilities, this expansion will enhance all of these areas.

As part of this infrastructure expansion, COLO@ will be installing an additional 500kW generator capacity to bolster their current 350kW capacity. This will bring total generator capacity to 850 kW. By keeping generator capacity well in excess of demand allows for seamless future expansion when increasing UPS capacity. High generator capacities also allows the COLO@ facility to better weather any natural disaster or disruption of the local power grid.

In addition to this significant increase in generator capacity, COLO@ will install another 300kVA of UPS battery backup capacity. This will double the available UPS capacity bringing the total to 600kVA. UPS capacity is critical as it is the first line of defense against irregularities in utility line power feeds.

Substantial UPS capacity allows all critical systems and customer equipment to continue functioning in the event of utility power loss and provides a buffer between when an outside power event occurs and when the backup generator systems come on-online. In both the case of the generator and the UPS, COLO@ has more capacity than is required with existing equipment loads. This not only allows for future customer expansion, but ensures that the redundant power equipment does not see 100% usage. Longevity & safe operation of power equipment is critical to maintaining the uptime levels that COLO@ has become known for.

The upgrades at ATL2 COLO@ facility entail further power upgrades. Another 1200A 480V utility power feed will provide another layer of power diversity to the facility. Gary Simat, CEO of COLO@ states, “The additional power upgrades of generator, UPS, and additional grid power increase both our redundancy as well as our capacity.”

Cooling the data center is another area to be addressed within this latest round of upgrades to the facility. At present, the ATL2 facility has 94 tons of cooling capacity. This upgrade will add another 140 tons of air conditioning capacity. A unique feature of this cooling upgrade is the use of Liebert CRV in-row air-conditioning units. These units will slot right into rows of racks inside of the data center and provide focused, directed cooling precisely where needed. These unique cooling units increase efficiency by

Gary Simat goes on to state, “With more focused in-row cooling options we can increase the density of equipment in our facility. In-row cooling also allows for more effective cold-aisle containment which further increases the overall efficiency of our 34 Peachtree facility.” The Liebert CRV units that have been specced for this expansion allow COLO@ to increase cooling efficiency while maximizing available space. Mr. Simat goes on to say, “The provision of improved power and cooling capacity is key to meeting the needs of our customers. They demand the best uptime in the industry and it’s our goal to meet that demand.”

All of the upgrades at the 34 Peachtree COLO@ facility provide significant increases in redundancy, facility stability, and tolerance to external factors. Eric Gregory, Director of Marketing states, “COLO@ is focused on maintaining complete reliability across all of our facilities. These upgrades at our Atlanta HQ are key to ensuring our customers stay on-line, no matter what.”

In addition to two locations in Atlanta, COLO@ operates data center facilities in the following US cities:

Los Angeles, CA
Phoenix, AZ
Clifton, NJ
Dallas, TX
