Switch Datacenters adapts new cooling technology in Amsterdam facility

The new cooling system is designed to meet requirements from applications including online gaming, cloud computing IoT

This week, Switch Datacenters, a European data center operator, announced that it has deployed a new, in-house developed, data center cooling system at its Amsterdam co-location facility, Switch AMS1. The company claims that its R&D efforts have resulted in the new cooling solution which it calls “indirect adiabatic cooling technology”.

The company says that the new cooling solution is calculated to result in an ultra-low pPUE (partial power usage effectiveness) of 1,04 which is designed to meet requirements from applications including online gaming, cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT).

Gregor Snip, CEO and Founder of Switch Datacenter said:

To build a future-ready data center able to support high-demanding verticals including online gaming and market developments such as IoT and cloud computing, one has to think outside the box.

Our indirect adiabatic cooling technology is comparable with Excool’s cooling innovation, implemented by companies like Digital Realty, Rackspace and VIRTUS, but ours is even more efficient, I can say.

The company also added that the deployment of the new solution is part of a planned expansion of the Amsterdam facility. The company says it has also developed an easy, scalable version of its newly developed indirect adiabatic cooling technology which will be ready for deployment in Q1 2017 at other locations.
