Do you still remember the early days of your business? The long hours, the grueling schedule and where you had to attempt everything on your own. Maybe your business is still in this phase, maybe you’ve risen to the next level, but regardless of where your business is currently, did you ever considered turnkey solutions?

If you’ve never heard the term “turnkey”, it refers to services that require no work or effort from the hiring business. It’s just like the reference suggests, you just turn the key and go.

A turnkey project is often associated with adding on to a business, like adding a building or computer system, but it can also refer to decommissioning equipment, too. Decommissioning is a tough job, but turnkey data center demolition and data center relocation services are as easy as a phone call.

  • We do a walkthrough of your facility, including a site survey
  • We remove all equipment from the site

Data Center Relocation: 6 Factors To Consider In Choosing A Cooling System

By | Data Centers, Equipment Disposal

If your data center and/or cooling unit are no longer efficient, you may want to consider a data center relocation. A different data center means different cooling system needs. Here are some ways to assess the cooling needs of your existing data center or a data center you’re planning to relocate to.

Here Are 6 Factors To Consider When Choosing A Cooling System:

1. Parameters

The parameters of your facility will dictate many of the parameters of your cooling system. Consider these factors when thinking about a cooling system:

    • The ambient temperature
    • The type of insulation
    • The size
    • The length of the existing ducting, if any
    • Your data center’s thermal load (or the amount of energy that’s required to cool a space in one hour)?

2. Hot And Cold Airflow

Most cooling units must have access to fresh air in order to operate efficiently. This is sometimes referred to as fresh air intake.

The object of the game is to cool a data center’s equipment so it can operate efficiently. We often talk about cooling capabilities, but we don’t always discuss hot air exhaust. Cooling systems also generate heat that needs to be routed out of your facility and dissipated. You always need to factor in the room necessary to dissipate that hot air.

5. Humidity

Humidity, with or without heat, is another a factor that we don’t always think about when installing a cooling system. You may not need to worry about humidity if you’re in a low-humidity location, like Las Vegas or Arizona. But, higher humidity can cause your cooling unit to work harder. Some units come with a humidification control upgrade, which helps to maintain the overall climate and temperature.

6. Location Temperature

Just like humidity, the temperature can play a large roll in how you cool your data 

center. Much of this is common sense, but if your data center is located in a warmer area, like Florida, you’re going t

o need to use more energy to cool it. If your data center is located in Minnesota or Alaska, you’ll need less energy to cool.
