Keeping Data Centres Online

While we all welcome the increased use of biofuels such as biodiesel to reduce carbon emissions, data centres need to be aware of the additional risks this poses to backup generators. The increased use of some bio component/material within the fuel industry makes the environment within the fuel tank more appealing to microorganisms. Present in large concentration, these can create issues by blocking filters and corroding metal parts within the fuel system – issues which are not likely to be covered by generator OEM warranties. Pierre Poitras, Technical Consultant at Conidia Bioscience looks at what data centres should be doing to ensure they stay online?

The hidden cost of data Zero-carbon cooling systems revolutionise data centre energy efficiency. Data underpins every aspect of modern life, with more information generated now than ever before. Keeping data centres cool is crucial for their safe and effective function, but due to the large amounts of waste heat they generate, this requires significant power consumption. To tackle this issue, Glasgow-based green energy pioneer, Katrick Technologies, has developed and patented a unique passive cooling system that removes waste heat without external power required. Here, Katrick Co-CEO Vijay Madlani examines the costs of data centre cooling and how new systems can revolutionise efficiency.
