Cold Aisle Containment Technology Optimises Power Efficiency in iomart DCs
iomart (AIM:IOM), one of the UK and Europe’s leading cloud companies, has been recognised by global systems provider Rittal for its innovative approach to data centre technology.
iomart uses Rittal TS IT enclosure systems in its data centres to provide the optimum environment to host the servers and network requirements of its customers. iomart was the first data centre operator to use Rittal’s I/0 Cold Isle Containment System which provided a 50 per cent increase in cooling efficiency from the day it was installed.
Shane Hope, IT Sales Director for Rittal, said: “This award recognises iomart’s superb technical approach to efficiency and control within its data centres. We have a great long-term relationship with iomart and continue to provide it with the innovative products that help it provide mission-critical infrastructure for businesses and organisations throughout UK and Europe.”
iomart is about to complete work on increasing the capacity of its data centre in Maidenhead by a further 600+ racks to meet greater demand for data storage. It is utilising Rittal Cold Aisle Containment to accommodate high density power draw within the new racks.
Neil Johnston, Group Technical Operations Director for iomart, said: “Rittal provides us with consistently innovative technology. For our most recent expansion in Maidenhead they’ve provided us with the most energy efficient systems to optimise our new cooling technology.”
